Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 4 – Episode 1 – Self-Awareness – Self-Evaluation

Guys! Welcome to the first episode of season 4! I just want to kick some things off before starting this. I want to do a self-awareness/self-evaluation before proceeding.

To develop a skill, you first need to know where you’re starting from. What are your current strengths and weaknesses in particular areas of English? Is it listening? Is it speaking? Pronunciation? Incorrect grammar use? Once you become aware, what is it you want to achieve? Where do you need to improve? What are your resources? What could obstruct your goals?

Ways of developing such awareness include:

  • Using self-eval questionnaires
  • Monitoring your progress
  • Maintaining a reflective journal or blog
  • A group discussion or chat
  • Feedback from others

Now, I want you to complete the chart with your own information about your study of English.
