This lesson was very challenging, but helpful. Tenses -- more specifically conditionals -- are very challenging for me even in my native language of English, so I am sure it would be even more challenging for those who are studying English as a second language. This lesson taught the different conditionals and tenses for reported speech, including what context to use them in.Thanks to this unit, I've been able to learn that the different aspects of the language need to be taught in a different way. This being said, I also learnt what is important for the students to know about the language they are learning, so teachers must be able to provide them with all the necessary information, in order to achieve the best scenario for the learning process.
