It is the last week of my English class. All but one of my students have passed their assessments. How to help that person? She’ll repeat my class next semester.

It’s a question of familiarity with language structure, internalization, and confidence. According to me (and Krashen), she needs a lot of comprehensible input. Good modeling. 

I’ll get her to highlight the easiest sentences on every page of a book, and then the next easiest batch of sentences the next and subsequent runs through. Possibly copy them out too.

If I did that with Spanish, say, I’d probably make good progress.
