Unit 14 gave the pros and cons of using authentic materials, coursebooks and lesson materials when teaching English to those learning the language. The Unit also encouraged the use of the boomerang sequence of teaching the lesson in the classroom, that is, engage, activate 1, study, activate 2. Thus the Unit also served as a revision to that teaching method.This unit is mainly about the usage of modal verbs and the passive voice in English communication, and also briefly covers relative clauses and phrasal verbs.Some basic rules, forms, usages and teaching ideas are presented in this unit. These parts of grammar might be a bit difficult for students, so more practice and teaching skills will be needed in class.
