Unit 3 has introduced me to various lesson plans in the ESA form. I now feel as if I have clear ideas of activities I can use to teach and motivate students in various lessons I can offer to them. I am now confident to use these teaching methods in the classroom to give students a more comfortable learning environment. I can now correct students only when it is necessary.Unit 14 has updated my knowledge about teaching material availability online apart from the coursebook and lesson materials as provided at school. It has also relaxed my previous training where a rigid, structured teaching environment was advised. Now I am more confident in bringing a more relaxed delivery and environment in which my future students can learn and thrive.
