As much as I appreciate the use of grammar in the teaching of ESL, don't you think this unit is way over the top on a \"need to know basis\" for all cultures TRYING to learn English. Not even I would attempt to use this lesson in any shape or form as it is too complicated...even for me to digest, let alone teach to a group of foreign students.In past units I learned more about how to teach certain things and what specifically to teach. In this unit I learned how students learn. This was very interesting for me, as I was gaining insight into how I myself learned certain things as I was reading about learning, so pausing for introspection certainly became part of the lesson for me.
