From the unit, I have an overview of teaching methodology, especially ESA. I've learnt different patterns of EAS and the error correction techniques.

The Tom Cruise example allowed me to visualize how I would go about using a podcast as a potential listening activity, pre-empting any problematic vocabulary and asking students to research podcast on their own to present on.
