This unit I have learnt how to differentiate between future tenses and how to apply it to students, there are quite a few similarities between the tense ie future simple, going to etc and quite easily confuse a student. A lot of study and demonstration I have learnt will be needed to be able to explain clearly the differences to the students.Unit eleven focuses on receptive skills - reading and listening. Undoubtedly, thise skills are an important component of successful learning foreign language. From this lesson I have learned how to help the students succeed in this area, how can I make then interested and motivate for further studing, and how to make a lesson more productive.
