Testing is an important part of all English courses and must be included in all lesson plans, including the possibility of the student´s need or desire to take an external exam at the end of the course. The type of testing should be applied to the situation that is presented such as leveling the student or allowing the teacher or the student to see the progress achieved.This unit was very helpful with starting to learn the basics of knowing the qualities of a good teacher as well as a good learner. I felt that there were many examples that were provided both in the book and in the video that I can learn from. Not only did it teach me what qualities I should portray as a teacher but as well as how effective I should be when giving a lesson.
