Overview

Eric W. Vogt's Conquer the Spanish Subjunctive offers many valuable tools to teachers and students, whether in a class setting or as independent learners, to master the subjunctive mood of Spanish. Designed for 2nd semester or 3rd quarter students to avoid the fossilization of errors, this book is the answer to what Vogt refers to as the mystification of an area of Spanish grammar. Methodical but lively throughout, Conquer the Spanish Subjunctive begins with a demystification of this aspect of Spanish grammar. After convincing learners that is necessary to learn the subjunctive in order to communicate meaningfully, form is addressed before function. The various situations in which the four tenses of the subjunctive mood are used are separately and sequentially explicated, each with their respective set of rules. One of the tools offered in this book makes it worth the cost. Vogt's verb morphology tool, TurboVerb, presupposes only a knowledge of the present indicative and the preterite. Coordinated with the bestseller 501 Spanish Verbs by Christopher Kendris, TurboVerb shows how, armed with only six forms of every verb and a handful of rules, every form in every tense and mood can be derived, including irregular forms. Answer keys to the all the exercises provide more than just "the right answers" - they address psychological factors about tense and mood choice to justify them. Perforated pages allow teachers pedagogical flexibility - keys can be removed if they want to use the exercises for quizzes. A scoring section allows teachers or self-study learners to diagnose and assign appropriate remedial study. Conquer the Spanish Subjunctive offers teachersflexibility since it works transparently with any standard textbook as a focused supplement. After all the categories of subjunctive are explained and tested, his "Big Test" scrambles all the categories of subjunctive usage and sequence of tense. The difficulties students encounter regarding sequence of tenses are addressed in a succinct appendix, making the rules easy to recall by recommending the memorization of a handful of sentences.
