Echoes: A course in English literature and language
Echoes is meant to be used as a primary reading text for Communications Skills I offered as a first semester course to undergraduate students of Amity University. The book is divided in two parts, dealing with literature and language. Part A consists of eleven literary texts, comprising essays, short stories and poems, with brief introductions on the writers and the themes of the selected pieces. These selections, it is hoped will enhance the learner’s cognitive abilities and raise their awareness about various literary genres. Part B has short sections on pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and meaning that deal with topics in language study to help learners master the language skills and help them in the study of other subjects both in the areas of science and humanities.
