An exciting new series that teaches students how to use grammar like a native speaker

The best way to bring the grammar of a language to life is by experiencing it in context, as it’s actually used by native speakers and writers. Designed for intermediate and advanced students, the books in this series put foreign grammar into context for students with an array of engaging texts, including newspaper articles, song lyrics, literary texts, and even transcriptions from TV talk shows.

Each chapter focuses on a specific element of grammar. A short text is followed by an explanation of the relevant grammar and several exercises. Exercises center on specific topics and stress everyday words and expressions. Students get to build vocabularies while honing grammar skills.

Throughout, elements of grammar that are especially difficult for English speakers are highlighted.

A debate on genetic engineering, a discussion of the impact of new immigration laws on Hispanic communities in the United States, an interview with Placid Domingo... these are just a few of the authentic sources on which learners hone their command of Spanish grammar in Spanish Grammar in Context.
