This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

Unit eighteen is about models, phrasal verbs and passive voic.
All falls under gramma.
In this unit, I have learned just enough to cover the vast majority of grammatical issues that I will probably face as an English teacher of foreign students because grammar as a whole is a very vast topic that needs a long time if teachers to understand it al.
The unit also teaches of modal Auxiliary verbs, which are used before other verbs to add meaning to the main verb or used to express differing degrees of formalit.
That is, can, could, may, might, would, must, have to, among other.
It is important to note that, some of these verbs may have different meanings when using them, and also different situations may require different usag.
In some cases, some are considered more polite than othe.
For example, may I go out?, could be considered more polite than, can I go out.
An other verb being thought to us in this unit is the Phrasal verbs or multi-word verbs which consist of a verb plus one or two particles( a preposition or an adverb.
There are three kinds of phrasal verb.
Type one, which is intransitive, type two, which is, an object pronoun that can only come between the verb and the particles and type three which is transitive inseparable by which the object phrase or object pronoun both come after the particl.
In order for students to become more familiar with these verbs, teachers should use them more ofte.
Even during uncontrolled practice or conversatio.
Unit eighteen also teaches of the passive voic.
With this, the object of an active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb while It is important to note that in English language, there are two kinds of voice.
The Active voice and the Passive voic.
Though in both of them, sentences basically have the same meaning, the focus is differen.
In most cases, the passive voice is used when it is not known, not important ,or when we do not want to say exactly who performed an actio.
For example, the criminals will be punishe.
Here it is not known who will punish the criminal.
It is also important to note that, perfect continuous tenses are not normally used in the passive as seen in this uni.
