Texto 2 - A mother in doubt.

A mother in doubt

Dear Mr. Clover,
My daugther Laura tries to study English every day. But she never learns it well. Do you think that she has a bad memory for languages?
Aretha Thompson.

Dear Mrs. Thompson,
I don´t think Laura has a bad memory for languages. She is a bright student. Maybe your daughter lacks interest or she doesn´t like the subject for one reason or another. Perhaps she is studying at a wrong time of the day. You say that she “tries to study”. Why doesn´t she really study? I mean, study and not try to.
Sometimes people pretend to study, but unconsciously they don´t pay attention to what they are doing. Ask Laura to talk to her teacher before it is late.
Ken Clover (coordinator)
