Modern Spanish Grammar: A Practical Guide (Modern Grammars) Reviews
This grammar guide is split into two main parts: the typical reference grammar (that any language learner is surely familiar with) and a functional grammar section, which is the larger part of the book. With these two sections, each grammatical topic or point is covered at least twice from different perspectives.
I got both the workbook and the textbook. I found them both confusing, with each item of grammar insufficiently explained. These books might work fine in a classroom setting with an instructor to clarify things, but I do not recommend them for use on one's own
I bought this because I've seen other books buy the authors that are excellent. This is probably excellent too, as a hardcopy book not in the digital edition:
I have in my hands Modern Spanish Grammar Workbook 2nd edition ISBN: 0415273064
I'm barely on chapter five and I've learned many things that I never came across in many other Spanish books.
Publicity on this grammar highlights that differences are explained between Peninsular Spanish and Latin American varieties, but these explanations are skimpy and unclear. This is still a grammar for Castilian.
This guide is extremely useful for the intermediate to advanced. It clarifies underlying grammar rules for educators and students when there is a need to understand the nuance of a grammar point or a distinction among uses. I have found it to be a fantastic resource.
I really like this book. It has a good, detailed index that can take you straight to quite obscure points of grammar. The explanations are very concise but sometimes that is just what you need. It is also an interesting book to browse through and review points that are easily forgotten. For what it sets out to do and for the way I want to use it I find it excellent.
