by far one of the hardest units I've come across this far. I will need to go back and review this again to get a better understanding of it. I am also having a hard time at the moment understanding how deep I would get into the explanation of phonemes. This unit will need to be reviewed because I feel it is an important puzzle piece for teaching english.This unit was the most difficult, and in many ways, too complex for both the teacher and the student. The phonetic script part was the most difficult, and in some ways, most unnecessary, as most people I know who have learned English, learned English to be able to function in day to day life and to communicate, not the complex breakdowns of the language.
