It is important to examine the present state of students in order to to identify the quandaries and address those to amend the overall situation in the interest of the country.

Procrastination is the practice of putting off or delaying, especially something that requires immediate attention. It is one of the most known factors that affect the student’s mindset in answering assignments and studying, and one of the reasons why some of them get lower grades in their exams.

MORANTA, CIELO GRACE Y. ED ENG 106-Technology in Language Teaching MAED-ENGLISH 1 Dr. Mercelita J. Labial Reflection Paper on Deep Reading It is always the aim of teachers to make every child a reader . It is because the ability to read is greatly necessary to educate a man. With this main objective, teachers adopt different reading strategies and approaches to facilitate the development of various reading skills. Reading is a basic skill in life. It is not only a skill but as well as perhaps the most pleasurable , desirable indulgence to get someone informed and edge over in life’s other rudiments in learning.
McBride-Chang (2004) recognised that this bottom-up approach resulted in students who are more likely to lose interest in reading due to the limited vocabulary and repetitiveness of texts they read (p.120). Whereas, whole-language learners are exposed to various unrestricted texts requiring them to use their funds of knowledge to make meaning of texts, ask questions and make hypotheses. This top-down approach, however, left students lacking any ability to decode new words or build upon their vocabularies
As a productive skill, teaching writing needs a lot of time, and the teacher should be creative to choose an approach, method, and strategy. Writing is considered by many to be the most difficult and complex skill. It is therefore placed in the last teaching after students have learned the other language skill. White (1986) argued that teaching writing are more complicated and it takes more times than teaching other subject. Accordingly, Knapp and Watkins (2005, p. 14) state that “Learning to write is a difficult and complex series of processes that require a range of explicit teaching methodologies throughout all the stages of learning”.
In the views of Langan (1987) and Gunning (1998) writing is difficult as they stated that writing is more complex and abstract than talking. Therefore, it is evidently true that writing becomes a problematic area for the students who write in second language (L2). Besides students, teachers too face difficulties in teaching this skill as students find it complicated to acquire and deal with confusion when they practice academic writing. Teacher’s plays an eminent role in language classes as it is his/her duty to keep students engage in different activities which not only polish their listening, speaking and reading skills but writing as well. It can be said that a good speaker may not always be a good writer as writing requires much more than speaking.
They are still have difficulties in learning English language especially in tenses. They lost their understanding about tenses although they had been taught before, probably this happened because of the weakness of the students’ memory. And the problem that students often encounter when learning English is the inability to construct word by word into a sentence. In this case, students are confused and incorrect in using verbs and tenses. Besides that, they feel bored with the same technique to memorize all grammar rules and exceptions in English.
Then again, the central issue talked about by the instructors is the learning state of mind and scholastic execution of the understudies. A large portion of the Orang Asli kids don't have a benefit to go to kindergarten before entering Primary 1. It doesn't just imply that they are not arranged for the formal training; they are likewise not arranged to talk the national dialect, Bahasa Malasia, as their primary language is Bahasa Semai. One of the instructors told the creator that the fundamental variable which backs off the understudies learning procedure is the dialect hindrance. Showing the Year 1 understudies is exceptionally troublesome when they are not able to speak Bahasa Malaysia.
