In this Unit I learned about teaching receptive skills. I understood why reading and listening is important and how we read and listen. I also learned about problems with listening and reading, topics, how to create interest and tasks. I learned about pre-teaching vocabulary and careful selection of texts. The Unit showed an example of a typical receptive skills lesson.This lesson covers specific methodologies used historically in ESL teaching. ESA (engage study activate) is highly recommended, especially for new teachers. The most important specific point I learned is the difference between errors and mistakes. This is and important distinction and I am glad to have it. The activities suggested at each stage are also quite useful.
