Practising Spanish Grammar - A Workbook, Third Edition

Product Description

Christopher Pountain, Teresa de Carlos, Angela Howkins

Pracitising Spanish Grammar offers a comprehensive set of varied exercises for developing a greater practical awareness of the language. It is designed as a companion volume to the widely acclaimed A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish by John Butt and Carmen Benjamin, but it can also be used on its own by anyone wishing to improve their proficiency in Spanish.
