Unit 18 provides examination of modal verbs, phrasal verbs and passive voice with a closer look at their forms, usages, classification and some teaching ideas for each point.
From the Unit content I learned more about modals, particularly their appropriate usage and clear distinguishing, as for example to express strong necessity we would use the modal verb ‘have got to’ – I have got to run, as I’m really getting late! To suggest more formal polite request we shall use the modal ‘may’ rather than ‘can’ or ‘could’ or other modal verbs – May I have a word with you? May we please postpone the meeting?
The table of auxiliary verbs with usages and example sentences is a great aid to understand and remember them, as well as use as a final overview/prompt card in the classroom, once all modal verbs have been learned.
Regarding the passive voice, when teaching this language point, I believe, showing the students the examples of both the active and passive voice sentences would help them to grasp the difference between the object of an active verb and the subject of the passive verb right away. Further, the teacher could move gradually introducing the passive voice in a more detailed form.
Relative clauses and phrasal verbs were a little more complicated area of the grammar, especially in terms of teaching, which I would devote enough hours of lessons to make sure students comprehend it well.
