This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
This unit broke down the words that form sentences into categories and described their function, proper use, and placement within the sentence. As a native English speaker, I am able to just construct sentences naturally and I don't often have to think about how sentences are formed at the most basic level. I believe that this unit will allow me to better describe the different components of a sentence to English learners. That being said, the unit also touched on the fact that English has a good deal of modifiers, irregular verbs, and specific situations where sentence structure isn't black and white. Often, it is hard to apply a rule to a type of word that is absolute, and a rule given may only apply in most cases, not all the time. This unit also taught me that the difference in types of words, such as possessive pronouns and possessive adjectives, are difficult for English learners to understand, as certain words can function as either.
