Speak Some Spanish is ideal for an informal class or for self-study. It provides a solid grammatical foundation within a useful context, extensive vocabulary, and avenues for developing communication skills.
While grammar is explained throughout, the book is designed around communication needs, language usage, useful topics, such as greetings, coping in a conversation, weather, telling time, directions, descriptions, and ways to speak of past, present, and future actions.
Verbs, often a source of dismay for language learners, are presented in a unique way. Their mastery is made much simpler; no longer is there the challenge or tedium of memorizing conjugations.
