Throughout this semester, I have expanded my vocabulary, expressions, and transitions which I have been trying to consistently use in my work by taking notes and using them in sentences. Although I still struggle with it sometimes, I also learned how to conjugate verbs into different tenses such as preterite and imperfect, which was one of my weaknesses last year. This has improved my fluency and understanding, and has helped me create a variety of text using my own knowledge, which led me to achieve good grades. Compared to last year, I feel more confident about producing text and understanding what people are saying or what I am reading. I also spent more time on my assignments to produce them to a high quality, and included at least one new vocabulary I learned in order to expand my vocabulary further.
Another skill I improved during this semester is organization. Since there were many more assignments, homework, and things to learn than last year, I had to have a good time management and concentration, and work efficiently and productively in class and at home in order to produce high quality of work and master things quickly. I took notes when I heard something new or useful, recorded my homework on my computer, and listened carefully to what the teacher said so that I didn’t miss something important. Therefore, I think I developed better study habits which I believe it will benefit me in the future and in other classes as well.
