About Gramática para la composición, tercera edición

This best-selling textbook guides advanced students 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.

Refined by years of classroom testing and analysis of the problems students encounter, Gramática para la composición features the following:

• A colorful design helps students navigate the book more easily and engage visual learning strategies
• Readings for major composition exercises that stress authentic, connected discourse
• A Workbook with all of the homework exercises needed for practice (sold separately)
• Streamlined treatment of points of grammar, including an explanation for more than twelve functions of se with a rule of subject reflexivization

Reviews

"A comprehensive text for upper-intermediate Spanish composition courses that is complemented by online, student oriented materials... A resource that can be used beyond the scope of the class for which it is assigned and can remain an active part of students' libraries long after the class is finished." — Hispania

"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
