This chapter was more difficult that previous ones. Modal verbs, I understood. However, the different types of Intransitive verbs was very confusing. Furthermore, I found the different sections of Modal verbs and how to use them in different parts of speech, difficult to wrap my heard around.The content of this unit provided me a useful starting point to understand the basics for being a good teacher. I appreciated the comparison between young and adult learners, I also think that it's very important to adapt your own teaching style according to the specific learners in front of you.Fourteenth unit gives nicely organized information about course books and teaching materials, pluses and minuses of course books. The best information to keep and use is how to choose best materials, very useful. Thanks a bunch for samples, they are great, even though borrowed from other sources.
