This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
The most interesting and difficult part of this unit was the phrasal verbs. I did not know that words such as \"get on\" or \"turn off\" are seen as a \"whole\" rather that two seperate words combined. This is the first time I ever heard of the expression phrasal verb so I definitely learned something new. On top of that, some are transative and some are intransative. Some are seperable and some are not. It took me a while to process it, but a rule of thumb is that you can try to put the object in between the verb and the particle to see if it sounds good.
The unit also brings up modal verbs which I thought was the easier part. I think it is good that there is a list of rules on how to use the modal verbs which is very useful when teaching them to students. One thing I learned however is that \"can\" isn't used as suggestion but ability and posibility. I always thought that it could be used as suggestion.
Passive voice was also included in this unit. What I didn't know was that the emphasis differs depending on the usive of active and passive. The meaning itself is the same, but what's more important within the sentence becomes different.
And the last part that I will bring up about this unit is the relative clause. The difference between inserting an explanation with or without comma sign gives the clause a more or less importance was new to me.
