This unit focused on the phonetic aspect of teaching a language. The introduction to the unit described how most teachers feel uncomfortable teaching this section because it is difficult for even them to comprehend. I can relate to this assessment as when I took a language acquisition course in college it was one of the more difficult courses that I had ever taken.In this lesson I have learned what to expect from this course and how to apply the knowledge in the classroom. I have been teaching English as a second language for four years in a middle school in China and I want to improve my teaching skills and broad the opportunities to teach business English as well. And I believe this course will help me to achieve my goals.
