I have been learning English ever since I visited United States for the first time when I was 15, and since high school, the desire for perfect acquisition and integration of English language skill has been constantly driving me to study English whether it’s casual or slightly more professional in level, and mastering English has been a constant goal for me to reach.
I acquired the context and the knowledge of English through English tests like TOEFL or SAT,
but I wanted to make it perfect in every level whether it’s reading, listening, writing or speaking. so this year, i decided to purchase some 2nd hand books for me to casually study by going over each one of them.
I find those books from known, famous publication to be reliable and very entertaining. College level books like ‘American ways’ from Longman is pretty decent level book that contains a lot of reading materials through which you can study English reading and acquire skills to interpret English language and texts under the context of English environment.
and the ‘Pathways’ series from Heinle and National Geographic Learning is also very entertaining for me.
What are some other good books and materials for learning English that are famous that I can use to study English more professionally?
could anyone from English teaching community or those who know about English education very well tell me?
