This book offers the user a concise guide to the Spanish language, combining treatment of verbs with a clear, easy-to-follow presentation of grammar in one volume. The use of colour helps the user to focus on essential teaching points. The verb section deals with all aspects of verb conjugation, including constructions, with over 80 major irregular verbs conjugated. In addition, the index lists over 2,800 widely used verbs, each cross-referred to a verb model, enabling the user to find or check the forms of any common verb. The grammar section provides a clear introduction to all the basic rules and structures, clarifying subjects - such as gender and agreement - most likely to cause the learner difficulty. Grammatical points are illustrated by examples from contemporary, everyday Spanish, with information presented on double page spreads for ease of reference. Areas in which Spanish and English usage differ are identified and the user's attention is drawn to instances where language differences should be noted. An index, which contains key words in both Spanish and English as well as subject references, allows the user to locate information quickly and easily.
