Much knowledge and experience I received. In this task a lot of my weaknesses that I found to be and I need to improve further, especially in vocabulary and grammar saya.Before this I have not been involved in the process of writing a report as I only teach science subjects but with this knowledge I can also gain knowledge about me on how to write a brief report about an activity after completion of the activity. My strength lies in my determination just to complete this assignment even though I think a lot of mistakes and deficiencies that will be found in my job. After this assignment I intend to learn more about the ins and outs of how to write and produce a report that can be considered a good report .. But more importantly understood by the reader. So I really hope that my work has been able to meet the criteria of the assignment.
