As a regular classroom teacher I was surprised to learn that so many TEFL/TESOL teachers neglect writing, as it is a huge part of what I do with my Kindergarten students. As a student learning other languages, I always preferred writing activities over speaking ones because I felt less self-conscious, I was more willing to take risks and try and communicate something new.Unit 2 is an introduction to basic English grammar. The unit covers the main parts of speech of the English language and gives succinct explanations and examples of each point. As a native English speaker, many of these terms are familiar but I did not know their exact definition or function. Through studying this unit, I was able to fill the gaps in my grammar knowledge.
