This unit covered conditionals and reported speech. First, this lesson described the various types of conditionals, the rules for each one, what mistakes to watch for and ideas for teaching these to others. The second part of the lesson focused on reported and direct speech, the differences and the grammatical changes that take place in them.This lesson covered future tenses. Those tenses are future simple, future perfect, future continuous, future perfect continuous and going + infinitive. I basically learned the different types of tenses and their uses. For instance, future perfect continuous is used when we are saying how long something would be taking place by a certain time.
