English: One Tongue, Many Voices

English: One Tongue, Many Voices - Jan Svartvik, Geoffrey N. Leech When it comes to curriculum, I'm not easy on the ratings. It's extremely difficult to write a good book curriculum-wise, but Svartvik & Leech has managed to do just that. The book gives a good, and easy understanding of how the English language have expanded since it's meek beginning. They raise questions regarding how the language will continue to expand, and most importantly: they make me want to read on. They make me enjoy reading the curriculum. Kudos for giving me a book I actually enjoy, and who is not such a heavy read I want to die.
