There must have been many questions asking about learning English language from the best resources. Especially non-native speakers wonder which one is better and preferable.
Since MSM (mainstream media) in non-native speaking countries uses local English, it's quite difficult for non-native speakers to learn International English. It is worth nothing that many consider MSM as the most authentic source. But, it's not.
I seek your opinion on providing some standard books available to download here. It could be free or priced depending on the sources or agreement we manage.
We may ask the publishers to provide free downloads in the interest of the users worldwide (anyway, almost all books are available to download from other links as nothing is impossible on the Internet!).
At least some links -readily available?
Something is better than nothing. At least we can provide some link readily available? Say --
English Grammar Guide - EduFind (BBC links it).
I would be happy seeing these links on a common page or maybe, we can come up with some structured page easy to navigate and browse by the new users. For instance,
Under the page of Adjective
and so on...
Let us unite and provide the links that most of us agree (say -- BBC, Cambridge, Swan, Oxford etc. As natives, you may know better) and provide the links to the new users here. This way, ELL will become a complete guide to the language. Said that, if you are here, you don't need to go anywhere for anything including genuine sources.
I know that there are exceptions and it requires in-depth knowledge of the language. But the users (especially new) on ELL are in need to learn the 'normal' things first, and then exceptions or what we may say core English. Once they are thorough with the basics, they'd learn further as on ELU.
For this, we may have 'English Guide for Basic Knowledge' under which, we may start putting chapters, or directly downloadable books, or simple links to concerned topics but everything in a structured way as I said in my example of adjectives.
The best benefit of this initiative is on this site, I find users from all across the world and each one of us knows at least 2-3 genuine sources of learning the language. Why not (especially seniors here) benefit the new users or the community here?
Just seeking an opinion. Your comment/answers are welcomed.
