The aim of any holistic course in English should be to familiarize learners with its literary, cultural and structural elements simultaneously. Understanding English I introduces these essential aspects through two broad sections on literature and language with carefully selected essays, poems, stories, and units on grammatical and linguistic elements of English. The selections from literature are representative of different genres and styles, from the classic to the contemporary. South Asian literature receives special emphasis with brilliant translations of Manto and Premchand. The second part of the book engages with the improvement of the learner?s language skills. The focus in this part is towards optimizing learner participation and providing teachers with support for effective teaching and assessing of the language skills and sub-skills. Designed for undergraduate students of the University of Kashmir, Understanding English I encourages students to appreciate the richness and nuances of English language and literature.
