A Spanish Grammar Workbook Summary

A Spanish Grammar Workbook by Esther Santamaria Iglesias

A Spanish Grammar Workbook is designed to make the acquisition of the Spanish language a challenging, sensible and enjoyable task. Structured around the main elements of contemporary Spanish grammar, the workbook complements Blackwell's A Comprehensive Spanish Grammar by Jacques de Bruyne (adapted, with additional material by Christopher J. Pountain). Together, the two books form a complete educational package or core text that is suitable for most levels of formal education. In addition, A Spanish Grammar Workbook can be used as an independent learning aid. The 500 grammar exercises vary from simple tests and puzzles to multiple-choice tests and realistic dialogues that contextualize Spanish grammar in everyday speech. In addition, communication exercises, at the end of most chapters, function as prompts to the oral practice of the grammar in representative contexts. By these means, language learners may come to understand grammatical functions naturally by putting theory into practice. The difficulty level of each exercise is indicated and the book includes an extensive answer key. A Spanish Grammar Workbook is a vital resource for helping students attain, maintain and improve their fluency.

A Spanish Grammar Workbook Reviews

'The main strengths of A Spanish Grammar Workbook lie in the number, creativity, and variety of exercises provided at various proficiency levels. The fresh, creative approach of many of the exercises, especially the variety of puzzles, provides engaging and enjoyable ways for learners to interact with the language while reinforcing grammatical concepts. This workbook could be used by instructors as a valuable source of ready-made exercises which could be incorporated in the classroom or, alternatively, as testing materials. While the workbook's main audience is learners of Spanish as a second language, many of the intermediate and advanced exercises would also be appropriate and challenging for heritage speakers who wish to improve their knowledge of and proficiency in various subtleties of the Spanish language. 'A Spanish Grammar Workbook' is a valuable tool for students seeking to practice and review various aspects of Spanish Grammar that can be used over the course of the learning process. It is also a useful source of exercises in a variety of formats for instructors and tutors who are looking for creative ways to make the learning process more enjoyable and engaging for learners.' The Linguist List 'This workbook is a welcome addition for those who need to thoroughly test, review or improve their knowledge of Spanish grammar at the basic, intermediate and advanced level.' Hector Campos, Georgetown University
