A Workbook to help you master Spanish tenses
Some things just take a lot of practice to learn, and verb tenses are one of them. Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Verb Tenses goes beyond the scope of many other books that deal with verbs. Typical verb books often present little more than charts of conjugations with perhaps some mechanical exercises that do little to help you really master WHEN and WHY a particular verb tense should be used. Spanish Verb Tenses fills this void by providing not only hundreds of verbs with their conjugations, but also by offering clear, concise, and, at times, humorous explanations that pinpoint why a certain tense works in a given situation. The hundreds of varied exercises offer the added plus of allowing for lots of practice.
This book is divided into three main parts:
Part 1 deals exclusively with present tense - including the conjugation of regular verbs, formation of questions, essential differences between ser and estar, use of the personal a, reflexive verbs, and the present progressive mood.
Part 2 covers the other six tenses of the indicative mood: preterite, imperfect, future, conditional, present perfect, and past perfect.
Part 3 presents the imperative and the subjunctive, as well as the future perfect, conditional perfect, and the passive voice.
Two appendices complete the text - one lists verb conjugations, and the other highlights certain verbs and their corresponding prepositions. There are also two bilingual glossaries that define vocabulary introduced in the exercises.
An Answer Key to the exercises is provided.
As a review workbook, as a companion to a basic text, or as a reference source, Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Verb Tenses is an indispensable tool for all those who want to practice and perfect their use of Spanish verbs.
