English in Books
If you love the written and spoken word, this page is for you. A comprehensive and stimulating introduction to English language and literature, it investigates how the English language is used in a variety of global contexts, and explores literature from different historical periods and in diverse cultural settings. Here, you’ll explore writing and speech in a wide range of forms, and develop your skills in the interpretation of literary and non-literary texts.
English learners have a big advantage over learners of other languages.
Learning English by reading books is learning by input. The learning process is similar. First you get lots of correct English sentences into your head. Then you can imitate them and you can make your own sentences. And isn’t that why you are learning English — to be able to make your own sentences? That is why reading books is such a great way to learn English.
