Fundamental Spanish is a clear, concise grammar book for teachers and beginner to intermediate self-learners.
The book is structured so that each chapter becomes the base for the next. Once a lesson is understood, it becomes the basis for the next. The sequence of learning is orderly, logical and clear. There are tons of written and oral exercises to facilitate and guide learning so that self-learners can test their own progress and practice speaking and understanding. A pronunciation chart is provided and pronunciation tips are given throughout the book as reminders that the ultimate goal of this grammar book is not only to be able to read and write Spanish, but also to speak and understand Spanish. For the teachers: Fundamental Spanish is based on the idea of the task chain; the successful completion of one sequence of gramar is dependent on the successful completion of the task before. The book builds the grammatical base lesson by lesson. The order and clarity of the explanations will give you the flexibility to move as quickly or as slowly as you wish as you teach grammar and conversation. It can also be used to review any elements that your particular class requires.
