Unit 7 discussed teaching vocabulary, language structure and introducing grammatical structure to new EFL students. The unit states that in order to be successful in learning a new language students need to be exposed to the language, understand the meaning, understand how the language is constructed and be able to practice and produce it. It is important to remember to introduce students to the language in a balanced and manageable way. Unit 7 tells us that a students? ability to learn vocabulary is based on how similar the vocabulary is to the students? own language, the similarity between English words already known, spelling and pronunciation as well as appropriacy. In this unit we are made aware that in order to fully comprehend grammatical structures, students need to know what the language means, how to use it, what grammatical form is and how it is said and written. Although the vocabulary and grammar are paramount in learning the language, how a language is used makes a huge difference in how others understand and perceive you. Unit 7 has a lot of useful information for teachers to utilize in the classroom. Putting the ESA methods in action to get students to use the language is beneficial. In the activation of language, Unit 7 explains that using the straight arrow type of ESA is effective, while the boomerang and patchwork ESA methods are more suited for function based lessons. However, the unit explains that the lesson structure should always be tailored to the students? particular circumstances.
