My Strengths and Weaknesses in Learning English
In all levels of education, the quality of every learner’s grasp and understanding always varies since each student obtains knowledge from their educators in different ways. Additionally, it also reflects that students will have dissimilar strengths and weaknesses which can actually be seen through their study while they are all together learning in the same class. From what I have remarkably noticed since the start of learning English, I constantly find myself having many strengths and weaknesses listed below.
To begin with, grammar is my goodness in learning English. I can analyze and catch up the grammatical structures, tenses, and usages sharply and clearly whenever teachers or lecturers have explained them to me. Also, I rarely make any mistakes in grammar exercises since I am quite careful and thoughtful when building sentences or choosing the right answers. Moreover, good time-management is my another best virtue in studying English. I can separate between my study time and pleasure time distinguishably. Furthermore, I usually sort out a study-calendar, which enables me to submit every homework and assignment to teachers or lecturers on time. To sum up, grammar and good time-planning are my strengths in learning English.
Besides, listening is my feebleness in studying English. I am not able to understand the whole conversation well once the native speakers speak very fast. Also, I never get good scores in listening test since I don’t get used to the foreigners’ voice and pronunciation. What’s more, communication is also my imperfection in learning English. I lack self-confidence and become nervous when I talk to others and give presentation in front of many pairs of eyes. I normally feel as though everyone was looking at me rather than listening to my speech. In short, listening and communication are my…...

Strength and Weakness

...said, “If you think a weakness can be turned into a strength, I hate to tell you this, but that’s another weakness.” While Handy might have merely said this in a comical sense, I would still agree because some of my weaknesses are my greatest strengths. One of my strengths is my drive. When I commit myself to completing a task, I am in many ways stubborn about seeing it through. My drive can also be a weakness in that I sometimes try to do too many things with perfection at the same time. During my bachelors, I was interning, volunteering and taking on friend and family issues. It was ambitious of me to think I could handle everything on top of a difficult academic schedule in school, but I tried. For me, it is difficult to understand and see the line between excess and enough drive, but this past experience has taught me that it is ok to say no and put less on my plate. Another strength is my ability and willingness to always try new things. That is how I got a chance to increase my intra personal traits by playing a major role in organizing the events of TECHNOCOM, a National level technical festival organized by our institution. This created a perfect platform for exposing myself in both leadership qualities and monitoring skills. Throughout my life I have observed two distinct career paths, my father’s and my uncle’s. My father is a veterinary doctor. He secured a government job in India, which he continues to hold to this day. My uncle earned an......

Four to six key characteristics of my personality type that I recognize in my own behavior and style are: 1) As an extrovert I like to interact with people. I feel that my interacting with people will give me a better idea of what these people are about, what they’re thinking, what they know and who they know. 2) Another characteristic as an extrovert is I try to make decisions that not only affect me, but others around me as well. 3) Being an intuitive person I do believe I tend to live in the future because I’m always dreaming and trying to reach the possibilities of what can be. 4) As for being a feeler, I’m always putting others before myself. (I’m working on that one?) 5) I feel as if perceiving is good for me because, I do like doing a lot of things at a moment’s notice.

A role model is someone who other individuals aspire to be like, either in the present or in the future. A role model may be someone who you know and interact with on a regular basis, or may be someone who you've never met. For me,my role model is my father. One of the qualities that he has that made him my role model is that his ability to solve problems and come up with answers swiftly. In addition, he is a very logical thinker. As Booker T. Washington once said, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome.” My dad has atoned to this statement whe re in I saw the challenges he brushed off just to give me this kind of life. He influenced me to become a better person. I also strive to become a logical person. He influenced me in such a way I try to become like him when faced with adversity. The impact of my role model is mostly behavioral. I have seen myself more humble in......

My Personal Strengths and Weaknesses

...My Personal Strengths and Weaknesses GEN 195 September 24, 2013 Louise Gerdes My Personal Strength and Weaknesses The most common thing employees will ask a potential employee in an interview is “What are some of your common strengths and weaknesses?” I despise this question simply because thinking about my strengths and weaknesses is not something I randomly stop and think about too often. However, that challenge was brought up in my GEN 195 class at the University of Phoenix. The only difference was that I was provided the proper resources/surveys to help me accurately recognize what some of my strengths and some of my weaknesses are. It ultimately came down to that even though my strength is organization, I struggle with writing and procrastination, so I will have to develop a set of skills in order to advance in these two areas. In order to succeed in my college career and take the next step toward my career choice of criminal justice, I know I will have to work on one of my weaknesses, which is writing. I know that writing is stressed to be important in my career choice, so taking a workshop to improve my writing skills will help me in the future. Nevertheless, I know that my academic writing will differ from the writing I will be expected to do in my career choice, so it would help me significantly if I took the time to re-read Chapter 10 and Chapter 11 of Your College Experience: Strategies of Success. I can both improve my chances of...

...Huang Xu ESL 33B 2/3/2015 My Experience of English Learning As leaning English for almost fifteen years, I have to say I had a lot of experience of learning this language. Yes, I studied English for fifteens, it’s been a long time, but I still can’t speak English fluently. Honestly I don’t think my English is close to “fluently”, I think my English still can describe as “broken” or “fractured”, just like Amy Tan’s mother. The good news is I can feel my improvement, and maybe in years, my English would no longer be “broken”. Any way, as learning English for fifteen years, I always have some interesting things to share. There’s too much to talk about, like my favorite teacher, or the worst teacher I’ve ever met, or the experiences I went through when I first come to America. But because Amy Tan and Elizabeth Wong’s stories, I’d like to share the story about my first English teacher Mrs. Wu and my mother. So let me talk about Mrs. Wu first. I met her in the first year I went to elementary school. She is not the English teacher in school, and actually she was not the real first English teacher I met, but she made me interested in English. We already started to study English in grade one. However my parents thought the English that I learn in elementary school was too basic, and they thought English will be very useful. So they find me an English class outside the school, I met Mrs. Wu there. I didn’t want to have the class at first. I have no wish to learn a foreign......

One little child and then two and then three and then many, many more came along. And so our story unfolds ….. There was a little red hen, a meerkat in trouble, a brown bear, a black elephant and a white elephant, a very hungry caterpillar, Spot the dog, a clever tortoise, a big, roaring, yellow, whiskery lion, a kangaroo from Woolloomooloo and many more. These are just some of the colourful characters from children's literature who have helped children aged 5 - 10 attending holiday classes at the British Council's Young Learners Centre in Paris learn English. These weekly courses take place each afternoon for two hours. The educational value of using stories and the technique of storytelling has always been undisputed throughout the world.

...Strengths: 1. The team has the right mix of extroverts and introverts which gives us a right balance of team work and individual contribution. So, when we work in group, extroverts provides energy and enthusiasm to the group and introverts provide quiet adaptability and realism. 2. The group is highly dominated by intuitive people, who thrive on what is possible and what is new. They als0 experience a deep concern for each other. 3. The group has the perfect balance between the people, who think and the people, who feel. Thinkers add practicality, logical approach and analytical ability to the group where as the other half is sympathetic and understands needs, promote values and demonstrate feelings. 4. Our group has more no of perceivers, who adds spontaneity to the group and see all aspects of the issues at hand. Weakness: 1. Since, the group has only one judging personality, therefore, we tend to remain with the task and face difficulty in making quick decision. 2. The group lacks sensing personalities and thus, we as a group have a tendency to not pay attention to facts and details. Problems at workplace: 1. Extroverts have an edge over introverts because even though both of them have done equal amount of work, the extroverts may show and convince people that they have worked more. 2. Intuitive individuals have the ability to foresee future opportunities and threats and act accordingly. However, they seem to be less concerned about the......

My English 12 Capston

...Nichele Rivera English 12 Prof. McPherson 6/1/15 My Melting Pot Growing up in America has been one of the most unexpected and surreal experiences. I am only twenty three years old but being from the Big Apple, New York and being raised by single parent, nothing in my life has ever been a walk in the park. I am considered a minority because I am Puerto Rican and African American and it has always been tough for me living in such an urban area. Not having the best financial status is what made thing even harder. My mother had to struggle to make ends meet for me, but we made it and are still making it. I have always seen my neighbors, friends, and family also experience the same hardships as me. Many of the people I know had to fight to make it America, and I mean that figuratively and literally. Some of the people I know weren’t even born here, and became citizens. I even know a few Aliens (immigrants who are living illegally in a country). Just learning to speak, read, and write a new language is a hurdle many who come here can never get over, so imagine having to find somewhere to live or a job to make money to survive. My melting pot country has shown me and taught me many things. I am American, we are as tough as they come. I have always said that being born here is what makes you a true American, and still believe that but, I have also come to see that immigrants venture here from other countries are the strength that America is known for as well.

...Basic Strengths and Weaknesses of Kantian Ethics Main strengths of Kantian ethics: * Clarity - Kantian ethics is clear and easy to follow. Its absolutist, deontologicalnature is arguably the most easy to apply * this is good for environmental, business and sexual ethics. Any theory which is easy to apply is helpful/useful/reliable * Egalitarian - Kant states we should treat people as "an end in themselves" and so Kantian ethics puts everyone on equal ground * this is also good for all three, for obvious reasons * Consistent - the absolutist nature of the ethic means that what it says will never change - nobody is an exception * this is good for business - all customers are treated exactly the same and none are favoured * Honours respect and dignity Main weaknesses of Kantian ethics: * Maxim scope - anyone could universalise a maxim to allow anything, so long as it is universalisable * sexually, the maxim 'women should always be sexually passive' could be put forward, as could several others. Is this fair? * corrupt businesses could employ any maxim they wish to justify doing something which many of us may see as immoral * Inflexible - because of its absolutist nature, Kantian ethics offers no flexibility. Itdoesn't regard the situation of an action, which is arguably not helpful or useful in the modern world * this is a weakness for all three - environmental, sexual and business issues are all specific......

Strength and Weakness of Current Healthcare System

...Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the current health care reimbursement system. What components do and do not contribute to the overall effectiveness of the system? Why? * The symbiotic nature of components in the health care system * The fragmentation of the health care system * The school of thought regarding health care as a free-market good * The school of thought regarding health care as a universal right The U.S healthcare reimbursement system is very complex. It involves private and public payers and changes in the reimbursement approach of one payer have implications for the other. One feature lacking in both type of payers is reimbursement linked to quality. Payment is based on delivery of services: “Right or Wrong”. The current system does not promote quality care and most services for preventive care are not reimbursed. Those components don’t contribute to the overall effectiveness of the system. Given a clean slate, would you keep the current system, keep components of the current system or change it altogether? One thing we should keep in mind is, although not effective, the current system works! Billions of service transactions occur each year and providers receive payments that sustain them financially even though some physicians believe reimbursements are not sufficient to support their increasingly complex practices. The problem is that: * The current system leaves approximately 45 million American uninsured and a considerable......

Personal Strength and Weakness

...My Strength and Weakness I believe we all have certain personal strengths and weaknesses. For me, it has been very hard to find out what I am strong or weak on it due to the passive education that I had in Korea. I was educated to study in order to go to better college and then better job. Under these circumstances, it took me for a long time to find out my strength and weakness. Thanks to the MBTI and DISC self-test that I had through this course, “Spiritual Formation”, I could have better idea on my strength and weakness. According to the MBTI result, I am an “ESFJ” typed person. ESFJ typed people are usually warmhearted, conscientious, and corporative. They usually like to work with others to complete tasks accurately and on time. Lastly, they are usually loyal and want to be appreciated for who they are and for what they contribute. I was very surprised to see how accurate it is and of course it gave me a great moment to think about and find out who I am. I generally consider myself to be a well-organized, warmhearted, hard-working, and a very responsible person. My greatest personal strength that I think I have is a good people skill. I believe I am a good team player and I respect people that I work with. I enjoy speaking and giving ideas to them so that they can count on me to work thinks out. I am also good at learning and teaching things. I believe education equips us with the abilities to succeed in our lives. I like to learn things that develop my skills and...
