This unit tells us the teaching of new language to students. The new language consists of Vocabulary, grammar and functions. This unit tells us how to teach these three basic branches of English language. Teaching of Vocabulary will depend on number of factors such as similarity to student's own language, similarity to English words already known, spelling, pronunciation & appropriacy. Therefore the teacher has to take care of what vocabulary to teach to which level of students, what the students need to know about the vocabulary item and other techniques for vocabulary teaching. Typical style would be Straight arrow, Boomerang or Patchwork ESA method. The second branch would be teaching new language structures. The students need to know what the language means, how it is used, what the grammatical form is and how it is said/written. In the similar way, ESA technique is used for presenting and practising language structures. The patchwork ESA technique is more suitable for mid-level students. Lastly the language functions include areas such as inviting, refusing, agreeing, disagreeing, suggesting, etc. It includes the appropriacy of language in terms of kind of language students use, that is formal, informal, tentative, technical, etc. Boomerang and patchwork type ESA lessons are most effective in teaching the language functions as it will stress the need for activation of new language.
