The world has changed and so have the ways in which we communicate and connect with each other.

The current need of social distancing is propelling the transformation of the traditional classroom into  virtual/digital learning.

As we adapt to a new normal and stay safe at home practising social distance, it's time to capitalize on the opportunity of availability of time to better ourselves as an individual with the most powerful language that unites people across geographies  -English.

Oxford University Press, in its endeavor to promote excellence in education and research by publishing worldwide, recommends the following titles as part of its vertical  ''English Language Teaching for Adult Learners' to master the language that you require in all you do.

1.- 'The Elevate Series' by Shefall Ray, Samathmilka Balaji and Simon Luthra.

This series of three books caters to the three levels of English. Elementary, Pre-intermediate and Intermediate Mapped to the International Language framework known as CEFR, these books helps learners boost their all-round knowledge of English language, including the four skills :

Listening, speaking, reading and writing along with grammar and vocabulary. The engaging exercises and activities in this series allows learners to enhance their real-life usage of English while enjoying the process of learning.

2.-  Speaking English is sometimes the most difficult skill, even for people who have good reading and writing skills.

This book helps the learner sharpen their spoken language in various situations, such as their personal, professional and social worlds. It comes with audio and video components built into an interactive Smart Tutor along with the quizzes in the Areal app.

3.- 'Common Errors in Everyday English' by Saumaya Sharma.
This book is not just about common errors. It includes some cleverly deceptive mistakes that we commonly make, including often - mispronounced words.

It also covers grammatical errors, frequently used and confused expressions and faux pas that are made unknowingly.

This book can surely act as a worthwhile guide, a fact-checking resource and an easy-to-use reference tool. It will be of immense support in basic writing skills.

4.- 'Be Grammar Ready' by John Eastwood.
Written by a British grammarian with over four decades authorship experience, this book keeps in mind the particular needs of Indian Learners of English and provides updated grammar rules and information about usage along with examples tailored to Indian contexts and exercises for practice, all of which support learners toward achieving accuracy in their use of English.

What are you waiting for? Go ahead and sharpen your skills.
