This section is intended to help people who wish to improve their knowledge of English, and to find learning materials for children as well as other students. It will include the books written or edited by Prof Rajiva Wijesinha and Mrs Nirmali Hettiarachchi and their collaborators in the different series of publications for Learning English at various levels produced by the English Association of Sri Lanka during the nineties.
Some of these books have been published subsequently by Cambridge University Press in Delhi or by International Book House at 151 Dharmapala Road, Colombo 7. We are able to reproduce only sample extracts from books still in print, which may be obtained from booksellers. The other books may however be downloaded and used as required.
The sections below include extracts from the ‘Guide to Studying and Thinking’, and related exercises, which were used to teach critical thinking on courses devised by Prof Wijesinha for Sabaragamuwa University and subsequently for the Sri Lanka Military Academy.
