A simple approach for learning Spanish grammar by comparing it to your first language, English! Side-by-Side Spanish and English Grammar present explanations of the essential elements of Spanish grammar alongside their English-language equivalents. This method allows you to build on what you already know; not only do you learn Spanish grammar but also enjoy the added benefit of strengthening your grammar skills in your native tongue! Each lesson clearly explains functions and uses of the different parts of speech and includes abundant examples for each entry. Because the vocabulary is limited to frequently used words, you can concentrate more on a sentence's structure instead of becoming tangled in its meaning. A "Quick Check" section summarizes main ideas in each section and helps you retain the most important information. This third edition features a new exercise section to further reinforce what you have learned.
