Essential supplement for anyone seriously studying Spanish
on 8 September 2008
This book sets out with a very clear purpose and delivers on its promise to help demystify the common grammatical stumbling blocks you'll encounter as you try to learn Spanish.
As someone relatively new to learning Spanish but with a vested interest in getting it right - as I'm living here - this book answered questions I'd simply had to leave uncomfortably unanswered (because no other book had answered them or the explanations were hidden somewhere deep within the larger textbooks) before. Not only are the really confusing rules and conventions of Spanish covered but they're handled in a user-friendly way that even a relative newbie can understand.
Rather than seeing this as a Spanish learning book in its own right however I'd suggest you use it as a very helpful reference guide for those times when you're left scratching your head.
I'm sure my copy will get referred to again and again as I slowly begin to master the native tongue of my new home.
