In this unit, I learned many new concepts. I had no idea that there are 7 future tenses. The seven tenses are the future simple, future perfect, future perfect continuous, future continuous, present simple, present continuous, and going to + infinitive. Students can utilize the future simple tense by using fortune tellers or palm readings. Students can utilize be going to + infinitive by making birthday or holiday plans. I learned many more teaching tips that I will incorporate in my classroom. Overall, I found this unit to be very worth while.
