Praise for the Second Edition: “Students who master the work that’s assigned in this superlative coverage of grammar and composition will end up possessing an enviable command of Spanish. There is no important topic that Gramática para la composición does not cover, and cover very well. Explanations are accurate and concise, the underlying theory is sound, and the applications are enviable for the catholicity of approach that they take.”—Richard V. Teschner, The University of Texas at El Paso

Integrating grammar and composition, this comprehensive new edition guides the advanced student through progressively more complex types of writing by organizing the grammar lessons on a functionalist basis around the needs of composition. This innovative approach to teaching Spanish grammar and composition promotes systematic language development and enables students to strengthen their expressive and editing skills in the language in order to write more effectively and more confidently.

Refined by years of classroom testing and analysis of the problems students encounter, this bestselling textbook has been substantially rewritten and incorporates current research in composition, pedagogy, second-language acquisition, and linguistics. Expanded self-correcting exercises are also available online, making Gramática para la composición one of the most valuable textbooks available for advanced students of Spanish. "One of the most attractive features separating Gramática para la Composición from other textbooks of its kind is the descriptive adequacy of grammatical explanations. . . . The instructor finds sound and insightful explanations of complex issues of Spanish grammar . . . Learning activities include a rich variety of exercises that combine mechanical practice with open-ended tasks, always carefully designed to assist the learner. Indeed, this is a very good textbook for the advanced undergraduate learner of Spanish." —Hildebrando Ruiz Morales, University of Georgia
