Vol. 2, Issue 1 IJELLS – April 2013

Dear Contributors & Readers,

We proudly present a whiff of freshness through our section of poems. Also are included a gamut of articles in all the three major areas. A myriad of perspectives, concepts and research presented through the intellectual mindsets of our contributors makes a very interesting reading.

The poem section carries, A Shop, very reminiscent of our lives and homes. The following four poems are the angst of the writer on an issue close to their heart and they were influenced by.

Literature section saw a collection of papers, few of which analysed books and stories tempting the reader to surely have a go at the books they have written about.

The Language Teaching section saw a curiously interesting mix of articles, with the conscience of an English Teacher/Trainer reawakened towards their roles in the bigger game of language acquisition.

Communication Skills section reinstates the importance of this area in our professional spheres.

We are happy to bring to you the April 2013 issue of IJELLS. Happy reading!
