This unit taught me that importance of having well placed resources. Whether the it is authentic or created resources, the material oshould always be relevant to the students level. When teaching English I had difficulty creating material. I did find it more useful due many of my student being beginners. Sometimes it can be a nice conversation class when the subject is about the news.In this unit of troubleshooting, we learned the on the most common problems a teacher may encounter in the classroom and the suggested ways of dealing with them. These problems are varying, which may be how a teacher should be conducting a first lesson, building rapport, different levels and size of a class and the most common is to prevent the students of using their native language.
