Proverbs, poems, and songs illustrate points of grammar in this concise yet complete intermediate-level review. Abundant exercises follow each lesson and include readings, as well as cultural information and opportunities for conversational practice. Features: * The modular organization of the grammar lessons allows instructors to present some topics earlier, while others may be postponed or de-emphasized. * Verbs are given special attention in En Breve, with systematic treatment of the formation and use of tenses in the first eight lessons. * Each lesson contains a word study section with corresponding exercises to build vocabulary and to enable students to gain facility in the use of important idioms. * Because of its brevity and flexibility, En Breve is the ideal companion grammar to be used with supplementary readings or conversational material of the instructor's choice. New to this edition: * Approximately one quarter of the book has been rewritten with the aim of clarifying and sharpening the presentation. Some grammar explanations have been revised, and a number of exercises have been reworked or replaced. * A new appendix provides expressions useful in a variety of conversational settings and travel situations. * A new "Note to the Student" after the Preface offers suggestions on how to study. * Use of written accents in verb forms, a perennial challenge for students, is now treated in an appendix, along with syllabication, stress, and orthography.
