About the Author

DAVID BRODSKY is a writer and consultant currently residing in Aix-en-Provence, France. He holds advanced degrees from MIT and Yale University. His extensive experience working abroad as an economist and project manager showed him how foreign languages can be learned—and taught—in far more effective and less complicated ways than the normal “rote” approach.

What People are Saying About This

David William Foster

"It is certainly evident that Spanish Verbs Made Simple(r) is the work of someone who has spent a professional lifetime—and then some—teaching Spanish grammar. The pitch seems to me perfect: it is a detailed, complex, and [virtually] complete treatment, without engaging in useless simplifications or complicated linguistically technical discussions that students (and many professors) are unable to grasp."
