Dear Readers and Contributors,
Welcome to the July 2015 issue of IJELLS. Each issue, which is compiled, and released, leaves an immense sense of accomplishment on one hand (the amount of time and effort put into it) and a huge sense of relief (as this set of articles will be freely available for reference) on the other. We at IJELLS look forward to each issue as an opportunity for us, to be opened, to such a varied academic thought processes by our contributing scholars.
This issue brings to you the four sections prominently, Creative writing in English, English Literature, English Language Teaching & English and Communication Skills. We want to have many more sections. The contributing scholars can suggest what can be added to IJELLS to widen its horizons encompassing all realms of learning in the field of English.
