Designed for courses that focus primarily on intermediate-level grammar study or that require formal or informal review of grammar, Gramática esencial is an ideal complement in courses that use a reader or conversation or composition texts. The program reviews and expands upon first-year grammar to solidify students' knowledge and prepare them for more advanced study.
- A flexible package enables instructors to customize a program that best suits the interests of their students and fulfills the needs of their course: the comprehensive review and reference student text, the concise reference handbook, and the student CD-ROM are suitable for study and reference outside of class or for in-class use either on their own, in combination, or paired with another text such as a reader, conversation, or composition text.
- A contextualized, thematic focus helps students access new language within real-life contexts. Each chapter focuses on a high-interest cultural theme and opens with an engaging theme-based reading selection that illustrates proper usage. Vocabulary, grammar instruction, and practice throughout each chapter reflect the new thematic focus of the text.
