Is this the right course for me? Essential Spanish Grammar will help you get more out of your study of Spanish. Essential Spanish Grammar is an up-to-date introduction to Spanish grammar. You don't need to know a lot about grammar before you start. Everything is explained simply and there are lots of examples to illustrate each point. Unlike more traditional grammars, Essential Spanish Grammar is structured so that you can look up language forms according to what you want to say, even if you don't know the grammatical term for them. If you already know some grammar, then you can use the 'reference grammar' section at the back of the book to look up the points you need. The course consists of 23 units illustrating the various uses to which the language can be put, for example, giving instructions or talking about the recent past. The more traditional reference grammar deals with grammatical structures, such as the imperative or the perfect tense. All grammatical terms are explained in the glossary at the back of the book. Each unit contains exercises for you to practise what you have learnt and there is a key at the back of the book for you to check your answers. The new page design in this edition means that the book is even easier to use and the main headings are in English so that you can find your way around the book quickly. This edition contains a 'taking it further' section which will direct you to further sources of real Spanish. Essential Spanish Grammar will help you to understand and manipulate Spanish grammar with confidence because: - you need no prior knowledge of grammatical terminology to use it; - the approach is accessible and supportive; - the examples are clear and in context; - exercises help you practise every point
