Fundamental Spanish is a clear, concise grammar book for teachers and beginner to intermediate self-learners. The book is structured so that each chapter becomes the base for the next. Once a lesson is understood, it becomes the basis for the next. The sequence of learning is orderly, logical and clear. There are tons of written and oral exercises to facilitate and guide learning so that self-learners can test their own progress and practice speaking and understanding. A pronunciation chart is provided and pronunciation tips are given throughout the book as reminders that the ultimate goal of this grammar book is not only to be able to read and write Spanish, but also to speak and understand Spanish. For the teachers: Fundamental Spanish is based on the idea of the task chain; the successful completion of one sequence of gramar is dependent on the successful completion of the task before.

The order and clarity of the explanations will give you the flexibility to move as quickly or as slowly as you wish as you teach grammar and conversation. It can also be used to review any elements that your particular class requires.

It's true that some people spend years studying German before they finally get around to speaking the language. But here's a better idea. Skip the years of study and jump right to the speaking part. Sound crazy? No, it's language hacking. Unlike most traditional language courses that try to teach you the rules of German, #LanguageHacking shows you how to learn and speak German through proven memory techniques, unconventional shortcuts and conversation strategies perfected by one of the world's greatest language learners, Benny Lewis, aka the Irish Polyglot. Using the language hacks -shortcuts that make learning simple - that Benny mastered while learning his 11 languages and his 'speak from the start' method, you will crack the language code and exponentially increase your language abilities so that you can get fluent faster. It's not magic. It's not a language gene. It's not something only "other people" can do. It's about being smart with how you learn, learning what's indispensable, skipping what's not, and using what you've learned to have real conversations in German from day one. The Method #LanguageHacking takes a modern approach to language learning, blending the power of online social collaboration with traditional methods. It focuses on the conversations that learners need to master right away, rather than presenting language in order of difficulty like most courses. This means that you can have conversations immediately, not after years of study. Each of the 10 units culminates with a speaking 'mission' that prepares you to use the language you've learned to talk about yourself. Through the language hacker online learner community, you can share your personalized speaking 'missions' with other learners - getting and giving feedback and extending your learning beyond the pages of the book . You don't need to go abroad to learn a language any more.
