This unit talked about modals, phrasal verbs, and passive voice. The more grammar lessons there are, the more I realize how little I know about grammar. When they brought up the difference between can and could in the videos we watched in unit 10, at the time, I wasn't sure how to answer that. I love the table of modals and their uses. It will help me so much when I have to teach that to my students. The passive voice is something that I know we probably talked about in school, but I never really thought much of it. I need to study up on it some more before I think I would be comfortable teaching it. The same goes for the relative clauses. I knew clauses existed, but if I would have been asked to explain them, I would have failed miserably. I think it will be kind of fun to teach the phrasal verbs. After reading that section, I realized that there are probably more than I think that don't really make sense if you take the worlds literally. For example, the example given for type 1 was, He didn't turn up. Without looking at the meaning provided, I understand that it meant he didn't arrive, but if you add 'the volume' on the end of it, it completely changes the meaning. It's definitely one of those things where context makes a difference.
