This unit made me think more thoroughly about what impediments can make language, structure and function difficult for students to learn quickly and easily. Beyond the age and level-appropriateness of a topic, I think it is extremely important to consider, too, how applicable to the students' own life the vocabulary/structure is and how often they will use it. It's difficult to justify taking a large amount of time to go over the lesser used form or vocabulary to say something when time with students in limited. However, this could, perhaps, be augmented by making a game or worksheet that asked students to infer from context what a phrase meant and this might lead to a good way to study colloquialisms or slang.
