Dear Readers and Contributors,
This issue presents again a wide range of topics as a tradition that has been encouraged at IJELLS.
We have two book reviews, two short stories and a creative write up in the first section. It is a pleasure to welcome a very young writer. We have always promised ourselves that IJELLS will be a platform for original writing, and we are setting examples. The teachers of the Masters Programme in English need to encourage students to pursue research and guide them into writing articles.
The Literature section has a breath of fresh air in terms of an article on Temsula Ao’s writings and other new perspectives. The Language Teaching section and Communication Skills section have a very interesting compilation of academic thoughts and insights.
We, at IJELLS are preparing to take the presence of IJELLS in other countries seriously. We invite Editors from countries other than India. If interested kindly mail your Resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Reading and Sharing!
