This unit was interesting, and I felt really challenged by the EP method of teaching, as I've only been exposed to the ESA method of teaching. I also feel like I better understand the concept of authentic vs non-authentic materials. I am, however, still concerned about having to create my own syllabus. I had thought that this unit would go into more depth about this aspect.This unit was more work on grammar, specifically all about conditionals and reported speech. It covered the five different types of conditionals as well as providing ways to teach them in the classroom and did the same for reported speech. I found the section on reported speech a little hard to grasp as I'd never really thought about the correct grammar rules for it before.
