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.Nelson Rojas is the author of 'Gramtica Esencial Text' with ISBN 9780618331505 and ISBN 0618331506.
