Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the April 2023 issue of IJELLS. We have begun the 12th -year cycle. This issue presents an interesting and informative combination of articles.

There is a paper on the Gujarati translations of Shakespeare, proving how the great playwright’s work reaches out to different cultures and geographical spaces. The article on Mizo literature is a learning experience. Using gaming as part of the ELT process and an actual lesson plan are all part of this issue.
