Unit 3 of ESL/EFL is all about introducing yourself and learning to ask and answer questions about yourself. It's an essential lesson for young learners who are beginning to learn English as a second language.

In this unit, students will learn how to introduce themselves in English by sharing personal information like their name, age, and where they come from. They will also learn possessive adjectives such as "my" and "your," which are the building blocks for talking about themselves and others.

One of the exciting features of this unit is the introduction of key characters in the course. These characters will accompany students throughout the course and provide a fun and engaging way to learn English.
