Description (Grammar and Communication Skills)
A glossary, probing questions, information about the author and suggestions for extended reading are included in the textbook at the end of each lesson. Grammar components are described and explained followed by exercises. This is intended to strengthen the vocabulary, aid reading comprehension, and help improve grammar, reading and writing skills. With each semester, the grammar and communication skills components are progressively graded to aid development of skills that would help learners in day to day communication and academic pursuits which prepares them for their professional endeavors in future. Emphasis will be on all the basic skills of language and analysis, and critical appreciation of texts. Inclusion of the audio-visual text will contribute towards this objective.
