This unit covered how to teach the specific needs of beginning learners, young learners, business learners, and monolingual vs multilingual learners. There are several subsets of beginner learners and the teacher has to base the lessons on the level of the student as well as assess what the needs are for the students. The unit gave an example of needs and level assessment as well as lesson plan ideas for young learners and business learners. The unit also went over a lot of what you should and shouldn't do when teaching these different types of special groups.
