Spanish Grammar in Context takes authentic texts from a rich variety of sources and uses them as the starting point for the illustration and explanation of key areas of Spanish Grammar. Placing the emphasis on grammar in context and on grammar with a functional and communicative purpose, the authors have included a range of exercises, many of them text-based, to give students the opportunity to practice these key points. Grammar is presented not as an end in itself, but as a tool essential both to understanding and enjoying the authentic language of native speakers, and to producing effective language of one's own. Aimed at intermediate and advanced students of Spanish, this book can be used both for individual and for tutor-led study.

From the Back Cover:

Learn to use Spanish 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 is actually used by native speakers and writers. Spanish Grammar in Context presents authentic texts from newspapers and magazines from across the Spanish-speaking world and uses them as the starting point for the illustration and explanation of key areas of Spanish grammar, particularly those that cause difficulties for English speakers.

Each chapter covers a different grammatical concept using:

  • Lively texts that capture your interest, including articles on efforts to preserve the Amazon rainforest, the dangers of Internet addiction, and an interview with film director Pedro Almodóvar
  • Clear explanations of the grammar points you encounter in the text example
  • Exercises for you to practice key points and build your vocabulary
  • A key to the exercises so you can check your progress

Whether you are an intermediate or an advanced student of Spanish, you'll find Spanish Grammar in Context invaluable for individual or classroom learning.

Includes sources from around the Spanish-speaking world, such as

  • El País
  • El Universal
  • Prima
  • Tribuna
