As you may know, I've been learning English through online lessons everyday.
The amazing teacher is more popular than before, so, it is difficult to choose her everyday.

Her teaching way is not stagnant, but proceeding.
After we talk a free conversation a little, we review the previous lessons. She asks about some words I couldn't answer before.
Next, we open the new material, 'Daily News for Beginners'.
She makes me explain using my own words for the vocabulary section.
After I read paragraphs aloud, I then have to summarize them without looking them.
I'm always nervous while I'm learning from her.

At first of a few lessons, she made me summarize one paragraph by one.
I had prepared it beforehand, so I managed to do this. On the next lesson, she then made me summarize two paragraphs by two. When I managed them, she has increased the number of paragraph I have to summarize gradually.
At last, she asked me to summarize the whole article ! I will have to do it next lesson.

Of course, I can't do it unless I prepare it. I have a very bad memory. I have taken thirty minutes for preparing it before. However, I think I have to take more time to prepare for summarizing a whole article.
I said to her honestly that I always prepare, or I can never do this. She said that it doesn't matter, and it's a good learning for me.

What will she ask me after I manage to summarize a whole article?
Her lessons always thrill me.

As you may know, I've been learning English through online lessons everyday.
The amazing teacher I had spoken of before is now even more popular than ever, so, it is difficult to be able to have her as my instructor on a daily basis.

Her way of teaching is not haphazard, but logically progressive.
After we engage in a little free conversation, we review the previous lessons. She tests me on the words I had problems defining in the previous lesson.
Next, we open the new material from, 'Daily News for Beginners'.
She has me define new words in the new vocabulary section.
After I read the paragraphs aloud, I then have to summarize them without looking.
I'm always nervous while I'm learning from her.

Recommended Corrections:

During our first few lessons, she had made me summarize one paragraph at a time.
I had prepared for it beforehand, so I was able to do it. Once she had seen that I was able to manage it, she had then made me summarize two paragraphs at a time. When I could comfortably do this, she gradually increased the number of paragraphs I had to summarize by memory.

During our last lesson, she said I would have to summarize the next lesson's article in its entirety!

Of course, I won't be able to do it unless I thoroughly prepare for the lesson. I have a very bad memory. It usually takes me thirty minutes to prepare for each lesson. However, I think I will have to take more time to prepare for the summarization of a whole article.

I had candidly told my instructor of my preparation methods. She said that it doesn't matter, and that it is a good method of learning for me.

What will she ask of me after I manage to summarize a whole article?

Her lessons always thrill me.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I was glad to know that I should use 'at a time' instead of 'one by one'.
