When reading, must learn to appreciate the language, not read fast, not wanting to know the ending of the story. I told my DS to do so. Am just wondering if he understand what is "appreciating the language".
if your DS is not cordially invited, means he's ok.
My DS also got the same issue... read without appreciate the language... and have grammar mistakes etc. I won't be concern till I receive a phone call from teacher to call for a meeting. I'm trying my best to diffuse an already horrifying P5... hahaha... not easy... especially seeing my DS reading story books during exam time... need a lot of self-control on my part not to 'interface' with his 'preparation', or lack of it. Bite my tongue till it bleed, and I kept quiet... just waiting for him to fail his exam. I have yet to see his chinese and science scores.
If you still concern, you can insist for a meeting with his english teacher.
I'll take the teacher advise now, ie to ask him to read more.... wow, ur DS love to read so much!!! Parents are really in dilemma... Some children simply love reading. They read & read & read... till they neglect their study, we get worried. But if they don't read, we also get worried....
