This Unit was as challenging as I expected it to be. I however learnt a lot of grammar points that I didn't previously know. I learnt about Zero, First, Second, Third and Mixed conditionals and the typical mistakes made. I also learnt about directed and Reported Speech and the changes that occur in both. Overall, this Unit was really great, and will be useful in my classes.The beginning of Business English introduces possibilities that lay ahead upon completion, ideas and methodologies relating to teaching Business English.
