This unit focused on some of the more subtle grammatical issues of the English language in my opinion. I feel modal verbs are a more difficult issue to master simply because of the subtle differences between certain implied meanings. For example, the unit discusses the use of modal verbs when making a polite request. To a native speaker, we inherently understand that certain modal verbs make a request sound more or less polite than if other modals had been used. To a non-native speaker, however, it becomes much more difficult to differentiate between these more intricate grammatical nuances. While the chart providing usages for each auxiliary verb is helpful, I do think this remains one of the more difficult grammatical issues that has been covered.
