The book in your hand is an honest attempt to fulfill requirement of those students who are at the door of learning English with throbbing head and heart for the enigma woven round him about the language. During my teaching years I felt that they do not start language with correct approach say proper understanding of structures and their semantic significance. Second they hardly pay any attention one. The makes them unable to use words in their accurate structural frame work. No doubt, structures of particular language are meant for a kind of coherence between syntactic rules and their semantic implication. But this is not enough for a successful handling of a target language. Actually, they need a sense of language to make language functional along with the above mentioned facts.
Taking all these facts and substances in to account I have made the book entitled "Translation as a Technique to Learn English". The book has seventy four units further divided into sub-units within a certain chapter considering essentiality of discussion on the topic concerned. Each unit has some exercises to translate into English from Hindi and some revision items almost in all chapters to translate into Hindi from English. At last some sixty practice sets are made available to work out into Hindi and English each that students should feel more confident when they finish the book.
The book contains exercises and revision units on various topics and themes relating to day to day life say politics, economy, sports, entertainment, society, culture, education, current affairs so on and so forth. They have been written in many styles like formal, informal, colloquial, slang, dialogue, humourous, realistic, post modernistic so that students might be acquainted with various styles and use when they need. The approach of composition of the book has been analytical and descriptive to make the subject as easier as I could.
