Comment

The discussion is more unbalanced than others, with Masaki having 826 compared to Mao’s 242, who often relies on minimal responses. The conversation is warm but Masaki seems to be far more motivated and engaged, though he does have more repetition 23 than Mao (4), retracing (7) to Mao’s (1), and more silence 14.0 seconds compared to Mao’s (0). Masaki also has greater MLRs 19.4 which is almost native-like, which is far higher than Mao’s 5.8. Recommendation is that Mao provides longer and more descriptive replies and to ask more questions.

Comment

The discussion is more unbalanced than others, with Masaki having 826 compared to Mao’s (?) 242, who often relies on minimal responses. The conversation is warm but Masaki seems to be far more motivated and engaged, though he does have more repetition 23 than Mao (4), retracing (7) to Mao’s (1),  and more silence 14.0 seconds compared to Maos (0).   Masaki also has greater MLRs 19.4 which is almost native-like, which is far higher than Mao’s 5.8.  Recommendation is that Mao provides longer and more descriptive replies and to ask more questions.
