I learned a lot about phonemics and how to teach pronunciation. The hardest part for me was how to figure out how to translate phonemics without instruction on it. Another hard part was the place of articulation. As a child, I had a speech impediment that made it difficult for me to say my r's and l's correctly. It was hard trying all of the sounds according to their places of articulation because I learned to adapt to how I could say the sounds correctly. Overall, this was the most difficult unit, but also one where I learned a lot.
