This unit identifies different groups of classes and explains skills that can be used in teaching them. The unit begins with the ?beginner group and states it has different categories.Here it states that they are not mutually exclusive so many students will fall into two or even three categories.It gives tips for teaching such as methodology and techniques, possible problems and also outlines motivational skills. Being aware of students needs and giving clear instructions, how to help weaker students, to motivating them by creating a relaxed and supporting atmosphere, praising and encouraging them, are some examples amongst many others. On teaching individual students the unit cites its pluses and minuses and suggest how to manage one-to-one lessons, together with many suitable on-to-one activities that can help attain the goals.
