Gramatica para la composicion


From the publisher: “Integrating grammar and composition, this new edition of the best-selling textbook guides the advanced student through progressively more complex types of writing by organizing the grammar lessons on a functionalist basis around the needs of composition. This innovative approach to teaching Spanish grammar and composition promotes systematic language development and enables students to strengthen their expressive and editing skills in the language in order to write more effectively and confidently.”

“The breadth and depth of each lesson’s treatment of the requisite and relevant grammar points is remarkable: the ins and outs of Spanish structure and vocabulary (especially points troublesome to English speakers) are here clarified and exemplified. . . . An invaluable review and reference grammar which students will consult again and again, as they likely make this one textbook that they will not sell back to the bookstore at the end of the term.”—Philip W. Klein, Professor, University of Iowa
