This was very technical unit. So much to learn..... I had no idea that there's a specific word for let's say \"extra lettering\". This unit is very interesting, I plan to read this one over and over. It was also good to see those suggestions on how to teach students pronunciation.I really enjoyed this unit as an opener. It gave me a chance to reflect on what a good teacher should be able to do as well as what a good learner should look like. This unit also helps me to prepare myself on what the other units will consist of and how to prepare for each exam.This unit took a long time to get through because it taught me all sorts of different teaching strategies that can be used to help teach English. It was a little overwhelming due to the many new terms that I had to memorize, but after many hours I was able to understand it better.
