I enjoyed watching the video for this unit because I actually tried putting my fingers on my throat to feel the vibrations. I practiced the placement of my tongue and closing my lips. I think that it was very helpful to actually do it in order to be able to explain this to my students. I am looking forward to practicing this in the future.This unit dealt with productive skills. Productive skills involve the speaking and writing of the English language. Without the ability to speak, one cannot communicate, and without the ability to write, one cannot communicate on paper. Thus, these two skills go hand in hand, and is a essential part of language the English teacher must teach.
