This unit has been very useful to identify and to know about the different ways we can use to teach English in a balanced way and covering vocabulary, grammar and functions. Also I learned about how to approach each lesson depending on the target. It was very important to understand that there are not set rules on this and that a teacher must adapt to each scenario.This unit taught me more about different teaching theories and styles. I have used Problem Based Learning in the past, but some of the other themes, such as Frameworking and case studies, and the Speech Act Theory were new to me. I love using games as a way to enhance learning and motivate learners, and I got some good ideas for some new games to use in this lesson.
