This unit was very beneficial because it has taught me all the different conditional speeches and direct speech. By using the acquired knowledge from this unit I can confidently teach Conditionals & Reported Speech. Therefore this unit has been very beneficial because it has built on my English foundation and vocabulary which would lead to me being a better English teacher.Even information in unit 14 was not that big, there were more useful samples ( very good to have them) rather than theory, I found it very interesting and useful. It?s good to know how to choose proper teaching materials and what details should teachers pay attention to. And it?s great to have those useful links for getting and creating awesome teaching materials.
