9780205646982: Por escrito (2nd Edition)

Por escrito employs a step-by-step, task-oriented approach directed to intermediate and third-year students of Spanish. Students develop fundamental writing skills through a review of very specific grammatical topics and original reading selections. The material evolves from the simple to the complex, focusing first on description, then on narrative prose, and finally on expository writing of an argumentative and analytical nature. By following the prescribed method, students learn to write clearly and to communicate efficiently, avoiding the perils of direct translation. As a result, students increase their understanding of Spanish syntax and begin to develop a sense of style in the target language.

From the Back Cover:

Por escrito enables the student to develop fundamental writing skills through a review of very specific grammatical topics and original reading selections that serve as models for three composition structures: description, narration, and exposition. The book encourages students to pursue realistic objectives in a step-by-step and task-oriented process. By following the prescribed method, students learn to write clearly and to communicate efficiently, avoiding the perils of direct translation as they increase their understanding of Spanish syntax and begin to acquire a sense of style in the target language.

            Although essentially a writing manual, Por escrito balances its constitutive parts so as not to place more emphasis on composition over grammar or reading. Written entirely in Spanish except for a passing word definition or point of reference, the book is divided into chapters that center on writing strategies for which numerous models are provided. The language, readings, and exercises in Por escrito make students feel at ease while they wean themselves from pernicious translation techniques adopted almost since they began to write in Spanish.
