Indonesia is one of the most beautiful, fascinating and culturally absorbing nations in the world. As the capital city, Jakarta is a gateway to the natural and human treasures found throughout the islands. Jakarta is a busy metropolis, yet it is only a 60-90 minute boat ride to the Thousand Islands; a tranquil weekend getaway that’s a great place for diving and snorkeling with its vibrant coral reefs, or just to relax and sunbathe on the beaches.

Getting to know and understand the business world can be quite daunting considering it is my first time teaching. This guide will definitely help as it has many great resources to include in the classroom. The main thing to take note is respecting people and there cultures especially when teaching in a foreign country. I cannot wait to start my teaching career within the business world.This unit was a bit confusing in realizing when it was discussing language vs. grammatical lessons. I did find the patchwork, straight arrow, and boomerang lessons to be very interesting and I think it will help me a lot when it comes time for me to make my own lesson plans. It has given me some new ideas and interesting ways to lay out lessons so that they are as effective as possible.
