I am particularly fascinated with the section on rising and falling intonation and how that indicates or predicts mood and/or information, such as requesting a response. Learning to use intonation as clues to what the speaker wants, needs, or is conveying is a great way of learning how to communicate, as well as learning how to write effective letters and persuasive essays.In this unit the present tense is explored via simple, continuous, perfect, and perfect continuous. The unit delves into affirmative, negative, and question forms of each tense and gives examples of common usages of the tense. Also, the lesson lists common student mistakes and suggestions for activities. The explanations of each tense and its common usages was very helpful.
