eBook: Common Problems of ESL Speakers and Learners

Improving your English and Preparing for your Test

As the third most spoken language globally, becoming proficient in English is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, learning it can be difficult. Most textbooks will teach you traditional language structures and grammar, which form a great base for your knowledge. However, learning to communicate well in English requires an understanding of the idiosyncrasies of the language. For native speakers, the linguistic rules feel natural but, for a learner, they can be confusing to grasp.

We have created this eBook to provide those learning English with a reference tool. The author, Dr. David E. Ingram, has over 60 years of experience in teaching and testing English. (Did you know… Dr Ingram was the co-creator of the original IELTS test and the co-creator of the ISLPR® test!) We believe that the best way to learn a language is through lived experience; therefore this eBook is based on the commonest issues faced by ESL speakers and learners.

In this eBook you will find:

  • Advice on developing your spoken and written English as well as your reading and listening comprehension
  • Guidance for writing, from academic papers to letter composition
  • A detailed guide on pronunciation and phonetics
  • Easy-to-understand explanations of the grammar rules that ESL speakers and learners typically struggle with.

This eBook is written to serve as a reference guide, which will help you both to prepare for the ISLPR test and improve your proficiency in English for whatever test, if any, you plan to take. It is the perfect companion to your study of the English language, best suited as a tool to reinforce your learning.
