Using Spanish Summary

Using Spanish: A Guide to Contemporary Usage by R. E. Batchelor (University of Nottingham)

This is a guide to Spanish usage for those who have already acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge. Unlike conventional grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of vocabulary and grammar which cause most difficulty to English speakers. It takes full account of the differences between European and Latin American Spanish, as well as focusing on questions of style and register which are all too often ignored. Clear, readable, and easy to consult, it guides the user through the richness and diversity of this increasingly important world language. * Designed to promote the fluency and accuracy vital to effective communication * Tailored to the needs of the English-speaking user * Clear format for ease of reference * Full treatment of key grammatical areas, including the use of ser and estar, the subjunctive and the reflexive * Reflects the current state of the Spanish language both in Spain and the Americas * Highlights the problems of register and style * An important section on vocabulary extension * A comprehensive index for efficient access

Using Spanish Reviews

'... a splendid addition to the reference shelf of any teacher or advanced student of Spanish ... Using Spanish is so helpful, so clear - so interesting - that it is set to become a classic reference work for all English speaking students of the language.' Association for Language Learning
"Using Spanish is an excellent resource for both students and teachers of Spanish as a foreign language." The Georgetown Journal of Languages and Linguistics
"In short, Batchelor and Pountain are to be commended for having provided a reference tool which is particularly useful, given its contemporaneity, clarity and attention to sociolinguistic phenomena." Charles Maurice Cherry, Canadian Modern Language Review
