PREFACE

The Third Edition of Spanish Grammar in Review provides the grammar component of intermediate and post-intermediate level courses in such a way as to be maximally flexible in its application. We have been gratified by the success of this book and by comments from instructors and students using previous editions of the text. Many of the changes in this new edition result from these comments. We have tightened or expanded some of the grammar explanations and examples, and we have added a unit on the use of articles and expanded the unit on English-Spanish word associations. We have retained the key ingredients from our first and second editions.

The book contains grammatical analyses of the structure of Spanish, in addition to a wide range of practice exercises. In order to facilitate individual practice, we have made an Answer Key available. Instructors may, if they wish, assign this Answer Key for student purchase.

Since explanatory and exercise material in the text has been written with the greatest flexibility in mind, we recommend that instructors combine Spanish Grammar in Review with whatever listening, speaking, reading, and writing material has worked at the levels) where this review grammar is used.

Grammatical units are grouped in a manner which places similar topics together. Units, or topics within units, may be taken up as individual or class needs dictate, in the order of preference chosen by instructor or student. Within each unit, material is presented in order of difficulty and progresses from the most basic concepts forward.

In addition, Spanish Grammar inReview can be accompanied by Spanish on the Internet: A Prentice Hall Guide. This guide provides a brief introduction to navigating the Internet, along with complete references related specifically to the Spanish language, and describes how to use the companion web sites available for many Prentice Hall textbooks. This supplementary book is free to students when shrinkwrapped as a package with any Spanish title.
