Unit 2 deals with the parts of the speech providing their main uses and functions. A sentence is composed by a subject (noun) and a verb. However, there are other words that enrich sentences: adjectives, adverbs, articles, gerunds, pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions. Some of them have subcategories. Having had a closer look at the parts of the speech, in particular at spelling and adjective/adverb word order, has made me more aware of strategies and rules that students can apply to avoid common mistakes. Furthermore, I think that learning to identify the parts of a speech will enable students to use them in a broader and more proper way.

Therefore I found this section a bit more challenging. Not only as a learner of the material but as a teacher. Some of the concepts such as prepositions will be difficult to teach to first time English students. I'm going to go ahead and get a head start on trying to find teaching methods that are successful at tackling this problem in the class room., A very good general overview of important grammar tools used in the English Language. Personally I struggle with teaching grammar so this was a very good unit for me. I have learnt a lot of the sub-classes of each of the major grammar groups (definitive/indefinite Articles
