Written for intermediate students taking Spanish on a high school or college level, this book can be used in the classroom as a main text or as a textbook supplement. It covers every aspect of Spanish grammar and correct usage, beginning with verbs and analyzing verb tenses, the passive voice, reflexive verbs, verb usage in the subjunctive mood, imperative command verb forms, and uses of verb infinitives. The book's subsequent sections cover nouns, modifiers and the other parts of speech, with discussion of various interrogative forms, words that express negation, feminine forms, demonstratives and possessives, pronouns, diminutive and augmentative word formations, and more. Contemporary idioms are interspersed throughout the text, and the book's many exercises give students plenty of solid practice. Cartoon illustrations throughout the book help to demonstrate points of Spanish grammar.
