OrientBlackSwan, Hyderabad, has published my new textbook of English and Soft Skills (2010). It has ten units with ten different soft skills essential for us to succeed in life.
3. Emotional Intelligence
6. Problem Solving
9. Non-Verbal Communication
10. Written Communication
Each of these skills is explained through literary pieces, specially short stories from around the world. Teachers of English will find the book interesting and useful to teach literature ans also soft skills through literature. In addition, they can help students understand the role of language played in developing soft skills.
I wish the teachers and the students the very best in their efforts to learn soft skills in a friendly way.
