Thanks for this one mate. I will be pinning this thread. I am just curious if where did you find those books. Did you purchase it? I also don't know if it is right but i think giving credits to your sources might be the right thing to do. Unless you where the one who created those.

Hi my friend,
I come from somewhere called the third world, lol. So, I got those books during my time to learn English. Additionally, I am not sure whether giving free-download links of those books are legal or not.
Therefore, I will lock the topic and delete those links if admin or moderators say that they seriously violate copy rights rules, but for now, you can enjoy them!
Thanks for your attention and your compliments.

First I believe this is not a topic for meta section, most provably it belongs to Beginners & Help (Bitcoin Forum > Other > Beginners & Help) section because we are not talking about any forum issue here.

2nd, This really a great resource for someone who is trying to improve their English language skill. You deserve great appreciation for the collection.

I am not sure whether giving free-download links of those books are legal or not.
- If these books are free downloadable eBooks then you have not done anything wrong.

Therefore, I will locked the topic and delete those links if admin or moderators say that they seriously violate copy rights rules.
- Not sure what will be the judgements of the mods but I believe you are ok, you do not need to lock the topic now.

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

In addtion, if someone would like to learn how to avoid unexpected plagiarism, which seriously violates the forum rules, they should visit the following link to learn more.

Code:

Good links, OP, and I hope people here use them.

I think vocabulary is much, much less important than good grammar.  You can be a great poster without using big or obscure words.  As a native English speaker, I can appreciate when someone uses interesting choices of word combinations--but it's not necessary here.  Gentlemand is a member who's an excellent poster, not because he is possessed of an enormous vocabulary, but because he is very witty and writes well.  His posts are a pleasure to read, and he's only one example.

My suggestion would be to take a look at his posts and some of the members who've earned the most merits.  Nullius is another one to learn from, as his posts are very thoughtful and composed beautifully.  Also, even reading articles on Coindesk or the Wall Street Journal might help, if you can avoid plagiarism.  And Jet Cash's site is a good place to practice.

Agree with you, The Pharmacist. Grammar will help to build understandable threads. Vocabularies will enhance quality of threads a bit, but they are not essential components, at least in comparison with grammar aspect.
I hope that the OP creators will update the OP with links to English Grammar In use textbooks, or something like that.
Anyway, I have big appreciation for the creator due to his valuable contributions to the forum.

Thank you very much for your compliments, and your hints to other users. Your words motivate me a lot, The Pharmacist.

Exactly! I will update the OP with books on English grammar later.
I think vocabulary is much, much less important than good grammar.
By the way, I would like to share the following book, which is written specifically for biomedical scientists. Nevertheless, people who are not biomedical scientists will also get benefits from the book.
English for Biomedical Scientists (Ramon Ribes, Palma Iannarelli, Rafael F. Duarte).

I have also updated the OP with link to download the book, for free.

In the thread, I will give readers links to download books on English grammar in use.
Enjoy them, everyone!
1) Essential Grammar in Use (4th edition, Raymond Murphy, Cambridge)
Elementary learners

Click to download

Intermediate learners

Click to download


Advanced learners

Click to download


2) Wren and Martin High School English grammar (click on the image to download the book).
I also added this one into the thread specifically created for grammar books.



Notes:
- I will keep update the thread with more books on English grammar later.
- I am also considering about making different threads on different types of books (for example, vocabulary, grammar, paraphrase, English online courses, etc.) in the topic. It is mainly due to the OP will become too long with hundreds of books, courses, etc.

Thank you very much, tbct_mt2, for all your great works.
I luckily found your threads in TMAN's topic, then I spent several minutes to look at your post history, which led me to your topic here.
Honestly, you shown us diversified collections on both vocabulary and grammar issues.
As The Pharmacist said, grammar is a bit more important than vocabulary, so it's good to see you posted your last thread in the topic with collections of English grammar in use.
I am waiting to see your next collections.

The problem is more sophisticated to be solved by vocabulary/grammar books. It's a problem of culture on how to express information and for those using english as a third language they will always face problems choosing the appropriate word for their need (Ex; in french we use a lot of compliment expressions and describing things in a unique way that can't be used in english language). I also saw people accused in this forum and haven't the ability to defend themselves in english and even grammar and vocabulary courses can't save them. The key is to keep direct contact with english users and join english communities (practise the language as a culture) then to be able to interact with different forms of expressions (speech,post,comment,...) with better understanding. For non-native english users, taking english courses will help you understand complicated topics and longue analysis, but you still can make good posts in the bitcoin forum by simply writing in your first language in the appropriate board.
Am facing the same problem expressing myself/thoughts in a very good english so hope i succeeded analyzing my point of view here  Smiley

Yeap, the fact is the more vocabularies you get, the better skills on English grammar usage, the higher capability you will have to compose good threads, which are understandable enough to contribute to forum's discussions. I don't see demand to show up English slangs, etc. in the forum.
The problem is more sophisticated to be solved by vocabulary/grammar books.

Of course, this is basic principle when learning English. Nevertheless, the forum users don't need to use perfect English to join discussions, to express their ideas to understandable threads.

You should join the JetCash's Fit to talk English website, which is a forum too, to get more helpful stuffs.

This is an interesting thread and hope members make good use of the information shared here.

Personally, I think that it has to do a lot with self motivation. If someone is motivate enough to learn , he can easily find the sources to learn. Personally, I think that Wren and Martin can be a good book for someone to start with.

Hi everyone,

Today, I would like to share with you links to bunches of books, which might help non-native English speakers to improve their English skills.
It is a great books, but I am too lazy for them, I prefer not to force myself to learn, but do it in easy and natural way, by watching serials for exemple, or by simply reading this forum, it is obviously much longer way, but you'll never get tired from such learning Smiley

Did you purchase it? I also don't know if it is right but i think giving credits to your sources might be the right thing to do. Unless you where the one who created those.

It is newer a crime to still for learning! (And also the same rule applies to video games).

What an awesome thread. I've just downloaded a couple of vocabulary and the advanced grammar one and they are amazing books, thanks for sharing this!!

I just realized I have many grammar misuses! I totally agree with The Pharmacist regarding grammar, and also, to watch movies is far from being enough if you want to learn how to write properly in English. I taught myself by reading some good books I used to read many times in my language and then I jumped into the English version and tried to understand them. That's how I learned 'till now, I think this is time to begin to study, but I didn't have the resources. Now I have them.
So, Thanks!!

I highly appreciate the invaluable collection, which is very helpful for me to learn and improve my English.
I woud prefer those books on grammar in use, because they will help me to compose better threads that are easier for readers to understand my ideas.
After that, vocabularies in uses will help me to make my threads a little bit more ornate.
