Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Biographies

Have you wondered how you and your friends got to know about Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Nelson Mandela, Nnamdi Azikiwe and some other great names? It is because people have helped in preserving their history through books and so we get to read about their success, failures and achievements even though we never met them physically.

The word biography refers both to a kind of book and to a section where books of that kind are found. Each biography tells the story of a real person’s life.

A biography may be about someone who lived long ago, recently, or even someone who is still living, though in the last case it must necessarily be incomplete. 

Biographies are different from autobiographies. 

An autobiography refers to a biography written by the person it’s about. 

In summary, Biographies are different from autobiographies. Sometimes biographies are significantly shorter than a book.
