Overview

A comparative and simple approach to learning the grammar of a new language

The Side-by-Side Grammar books present explanations of the essential elements of Spanish or French grammar alongside their English-language equivalents. This method allows students to build on what they already know; not only do readers learn grammar for a new language but also enjoy the added benefit of strengthening their grammar skills in their 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, students 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 readers retain the most important information. New to these editions are exercise sections to further reinforce students' comprehension.

Sidy-by-Side Spanish and English Grammar 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The book is faithful to its title and front cover bullet points. The explanations of compared English and Spanish grammar are both comprehensible and comprehensive. Clear explanations are followed by examples, and although the grammar is explained in the user's first language, the examples are given in the target language, which avoids unnecessary translation. The book will be useful to teachers and students alike, however, it might be better to introduce it once the student has already acquired the structures which are illustrated, precisely at the point of requiring a rather more advanced analysis of the structure of either language.
