Unit 11, covers the topic of teaching the receptive skills; listening and reading to English Second Language Learners. It describes the receptive skills, discusses the purposes of them and how to engage students in lessons using these skills - through the careful selection of resources. Personally, there was nothing new for me on this topic, being a primary school teacher.As a native English speaker, this unit really put into perspective the recipe to putting a simple sentence together. Although there are many exceptions to some rules, it really helped in understanding how each part of the sentence is strung together and really helped me understand some of the challenges students may face when learning the language and how to overcome them.
