About the book


English is synonymous with opportunities and success in the age of globalization. This is reflected in the increasing demand for English at all levels of school and professional education. Indian students in general depend on classroom teaching to learn English since they get only limited exposure to English at home and outside. A comprehensive and perceptively designed English language course like Viva English Impulse is therefore at the centre of the teaching and learning of English.

English Impulse embodies the vision of an ideal language course for Indian students and offers systematic exposure to language concepts through skill-based exercises and activities. Its course components are: coursebook, interactive multimedia student’s CD, teacher’s resource pack and online support.



A rich selection of literature that includes stories, poems, rhymes, excerpts from novels, biographies, episodes from history, folk tales and plays. These texts represent various cultures from India and across the world.

The thoroughly graded exercises included in these books are of varying challenge levels and address students of different levels of ability. They give all-round training in not just the basic language concepts but higher order skills like inferential comprehension and writing with conceptual clarity.
