______the last six weeks or so ______ Smith’s 英会話 Hirakata, per Adrian’s advice, I have been working ______ prepositions in class ______ almost all ______ the students that I teach. It seems that regardless of level everyone has a bit of weakness ______ this area. It’s not uncommon ______ every student to struggle, so I try ______ make sure that I tell the students that I teach not ______ be too concerned ______ how well they do, but rather be more concerned with trying, and especially_____ be concerned with practicing, reading or going over their notes ______ class, and although it’s very important ______ work ______ prepositions _____ class, it’s very important to work on them _____ home. I have also told them that when I first came _____ Japan I would sometimes speak ______ many different Japanese people ______ English, and that if I did hear any errors the errors that stuck out the most ______ me were prepositions. I never wanted any of the people that I spoke _____ to be upset so I never got _______ a big conversation about prepositions ______ them. I hope that the students that I teach understand that I know English can be tough _____ times, but that if you work a little bit _____ your free time each day it can really make a difference ______ your English skill and also help you to learn more quickly. I have even noticed that _____ just the past six weeks that the students that have put ______ some extra work ______ their free time have greatly improved. Homework really does help.
Note to self: Do your homework.
