It was easier than I expected. I am not bad in grammar, but I have still some basic problem with irregular verbs. This unit gave me a general idea about start point of the teaching grammar. Definitely it was not a whole English grammar, but it motivated me to learn it thoroughly.As the Present Tenses Unit this one has been one of the easiest for me so far. Let's see how I perform in the Reported Speech stage. Again, I found the information very pleasant and easy to understand with well formulated examples that I will apply in my classes. Easy going unit.well, I have to admit that the future tenses can be tricky if you re not paying attention. I hope that I will be able to teach my future students what they need to know and I desperately ope I can make them feel the usage of these tenses as giving them good and simple examples :D
