Teaching Spanish Grammar with Pictures

How to Use William Bull's Visual Grammar of Spanish

Teaching Spanish Grammar with Pictures is a valuable tool for teachers looking for a way to show students how grammar produces meaning. It makes available in a digital format the full set of 406 posters designed by William Bull to illustrate grammatical contrasts in Spanish. These bold illustrations clarify difficult-to-understand points of grammar such as ser vs. estar, subjunctive vs. indicative, and preterite vs. imperfect. Originally published in 1961, the posters remain remarkably useful for explaining Spanish grammar in visual form. Bull believed that linguistics should be used in the service of language learning, and the success of The Visual Grammar of Spanish was the result of its grounding in linguistic analysis.

This reissue of Bull's classic posters on DVD-ROM provides versatile JPEG and PDF images of all the posters to easily incorporate into Power Point presentations and worksheets. It includes an instructor's manual on the disk that presents background on the materials, explains the concepts behind the images, and offers suggestions for ways to use them in the classroom.

Language labs that purchase a copy of Teaching Spanish Grammar with Pictures will automatically receive rights to (a) post an electronic copy of the content on a secure (password-protected) network for use by current students and faculty at their institution; and (b) loan the number of purchased copies to students. For other permissions, please contact the press.
