There are a variety of students who have different purposes of studying English. Although it is in one classroom, the students have their own interests and objectives. Motivation varies depending on the age, the reason for studying English, and the purpose of being in the classroom. Teachers need to grasp those situations in the classroom and characteristics of the students and provide the enjoyable lesson for the students.This unit has provided a very thorough knowledge base of different teaching techniques, when they were introduced, by whom were they introduced, how these teaching techniques evolved over time. This lesson has also enlightened different activities for engaging, for encouraging the students study, and activate their taught knowledge, hence providing the teachers with a knowledge for teaching the students in an effective way.
