Series: Grammar Made Easy
The Grammar Made Easy series is ideal for complete beginners as well as for those non-linguists who have some knowledge of the language but need to know the basics of grammar to progress beyond phrasebook level.
The books consist of seven units that present basic grammar topics in an accessible and non-patronising manner.
The interactive CD-ROM provides extensive interactive grammar practice, it contains around 220 activities (those included in the book plus extra ones) covering all the language in Spanish Grammar Made Easy. Learners work at their own pace and move through the different sections with ease.
Numerous grammar tips are at hand if needed. All the correct answers will be recorded so that learners can practise their listening and pronunciation skills.
The CD-ROM can be used with the book or on its own as a revision tool.
The exercises from the CD-ROM are also available on line through the companion website.
Written by two of the most established authors of language materials in the country, the result is an easy-to-follow publication, with totally accessible language and a whole wealth of practice activities … At each new explanation spot, for those learners who already know or are confident with that aspect, there is a fast-track symbol moving them on to a later section. In this way, all learners are kept on the move at their own pace and level of knowledge. This would make the book a really useful resource for tutors teaching mixed-ability adult classes, for examples … For its clarity and content coverage this pack represents great value for money and would be of benefit as an extra class resource for adults, as well as to be recommended to learners for personal use.
