Improve your English

Advanced Grammar in Use, by Martin Hewings - the most borrowed book from Westminster Libraries in 2011You may have seen the reports in the press about Westminster’s most borrowed book last year. Was it another Jacqueline Wilson? A book looking forward to Olympics? Or perhaps good old Catherine Cookson?

No, it was Advanced Grammar in Use, by Martin Hewings!

While it may not be as widely known as Harry Potter, as exciting as the Milennium Trilogy, or indeed as entertaining as the Wimpy Kid books, the popularity of this title, and others like it, highlights something important about libraries. They are places for both leisure and learning, for both adults and children, and for everyone who needs them, regardless of where they come from. They’re about helping you to achieve what you want in your life, whether it’s escape into romance, learning to crochet or getting by in today’s Britain.

'Learn English' display at St John's Wood LibraryYou’ll find collections, and often courses, to help you with your English in all Westminster Libraries – the picture on the right shows a current display at St John’s Wood Library.

The display highlights the free online Nexus course available to library members, Penguin Readers which are adapted for learners (some with audio CDs for listening practice), grammar books, dictionaries and access to the Life in the UK Practice Test.
