In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word echo. This word is used as a noun and as a verb. As a noun it refers to the sound caused by the reflection of sound waves from a surface back to the speaker. As a verb, it describes the action of a sound being repeated after the original sound has already stopped. The word comes from the Greek word ?kh? meaning ‘a sound’.

In this unit, I learned about topics to avoid when teaching in a new country. Questions I should ask myself if I intend to move to a foreign country. Ideas and websites on how to find employment. Relevant questions I should ask a potential employer before I arrive or in an interview.With this unit, I became more aware of various types of teaching and how effective they might be on different age groups. It was especially interesting to learn about where a student's motivation comes from based on their age and how this source can affect their behaviour in a class.Planning lessons is one of the most important things to do prior a class, it shows professionalism, the students can see you're well prepared and it also gives you control over the situations that might come up. When you anticipate issues you are able to manage the class much better.
