Each student of Spanish, whether a native speaker or a second-language learner, invariably encounters inexplicable rules of grammar. The authors of Gramática española, draw on years of classroom experience to focus on such grammatical topics that cause the most problems for advanced students of Spanish, especially the difficult rules that explain syntax and its components. The text’s flexible organization allows for coverage of material in a manner best-suited to classroom objectives. In addition, thought-provoking and challenging exercises appear at different levels throughout each chapter as students gain mastery and confidence with individual topics. Definitions of major terms are included in the margins where they first occur for easy reference.
