From this unit,i have learned important things to consider while thinking about presuing a teaching career to teach English as a second language .In addition to paying attention to elements to include in a resume or CV, i also learned what are the important questions i should think about before starting a new job in a new country and additional development with a more advanced course would be a good idea.Unit 7 was a very informative unit about teaching a new language. Helped me a lot to understand the different teaching methods and structures when teaching vocabulary, grammar and language functions. This unit taught me how the techniques for presenting language structures through the ESA method. i have also learned techniques to use to teach vocabulary and what the students need to know about vocabulary.
