Review: Touchwood I never had any problem with English language. It is one my favourite languages and it is actually the language in which I converse at home apart from Hindi. People who have had problems with speaking English or want to improve their English or want to learn English, this book – English Bites! My Fullproof of English Learning Formula will be of great help. Though being a capable in the language, through this book I have learnt many new words and have increased my word reservoir drastically. To understand the language in a better way, the author has taken the route of explaining/teaching it via jokes and anecdotes. The book tells us the tale of a man once a tongue-tied in school and now a successfully English speaking banker. The book contains private adventures and disasters, of the author with the English language. For me, I liked reading each page of this book. Not only did it provide me with good read, but also it expanded my terminology and gave me a range to make my verbal skills better. I definitely suggest this book to all.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
