COMMUNICATION IN ENGLISH: GRAMMAR AND COMPOSITION by R.K.Singh. Published by: Prakash Book Depot, Bara bazar, Bareilly 243003, India, 2004, ISBN 81-7977-092-3

COMMUNICATION IN ENGLISH: GRAMMAR AND COMPOSITION is particularly written for ESL students who are expected to concentrate on both the rules of English grammar and the principles of English rhetoric to improve their performance.

Structured for a semester-long course, it provides an introduction to grammar and syntax, with exercises and keys to selected exercises. It also provides practice in paragraph and essay writing, reading comprehenstion, and dialogue writing, and is useful to both who arew using English for their specific studies and for general purposes.

In fact the author addresses himself to acadsemic literacy across disciplines and seeks to help post-secondary students gain fluency in the conventions of English language academic discourses. He explains and illustrates concepts of grammar and other formal and informal language use in a format and style which is engaging and motivating them to navigate their professional studies.
The book grows out of his three decades of varied ELT experiences.
