I noted that this chapter is well linked to chapter 3 regarding the ESA teaching methods. I was happy to refresh my mind once again about the different sequences and activities that can be completed within them while teaching a class. I also noted that vocabulary, grammatical structure and function are the 3 items highlighted in this chapter and are key when teaching a new language.Essentially much of the content was composed of parts of speech I have learned previously such as nouns, verbs, objects. However, there are many different types of nouns, verbs, and objects. I was able to learn that transitive verbs are followed by an object whereas intransitive verbs do not need an object. For example, \"sleeping\" is a verb, but a person cannot \"sleep\" something.
