English was introduced in India during the British Rule and took the position of official language of India. Soon it became a language of the elite class and those Indians who knew English started thinking themselves superior to others. Macaulay was successful in his intention of creating a class, Indian in blood and color but whose thinking was like Britishers. After independence there was a revolt against English as it reminded us of our slavery days. But English could not be thrown out of India. It still exists as a second language and will always exist. English is an international language. It is rightly said that one who knows English becomes the world citizen. Kothari Commission has recommended it as a library language. Even today knowing English is a status symbol in India. Even those parents/officials, who advocate for Hindi, send their children to English medium schools.
Inspite of the importance of English in India, it is difficult to find good English teachers. The reason is that these teachers may have degrees in English literature, but most of them do not know the proper methodology to teach English. The author has a very long experience of teaching English methodology. There are very few standard books available in the market to teach English to Indian students. This book is a help the teachers and students of English.
