Book cover

Pitman's Commercial Spanish Grammar (2nd ed.) by C. A. Toledano is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their Spanish language skills, particularly in a business context. This comprehensive grammar guide provides a deep understanding of the Spanish language's intricacies, particularly in relation to commercial vocabulary and phrases.

To begin with, the structure of the book is well-organized and logical, making it easy for readers to navigate and find specific topics. The content is divided into various chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of the Spanish language, such as verb tenses, sentence structure, and vocabulary related to different business scenarios. This systematic approach ensures a thorough coverage of all essential grammar rules and concepts.

One notable aspect of this book is its emphasis on practical application. Rather than merely providing dry explanations and examples, Pitman's Commercial Spanish Grammar offers numerous exercises and activities throughout each chapter. These exercises not only reinforce the material learned but also allow readers to practice applying the concepts in real-life situations. Furthermore, the answer key at the end of the book proves to be a useful tool for self-assessment and review.

Another strength of Toledano's book is its inclusion of a wide range of commercial vocabulary and phrases. The author recognizes that business communication requires a specific set of terminology and expressions, and thus dedicates ample space to these areas. Whether it's negotiating deals, writing business letters, or conducting meetings, Pitman's Commercial Spanish Grammar equips readers with the necessary tools to communicate effectively in a professional setting.

Moreover, Toledano's writing style is clear and concise, ensuring that readers can grasp the grammar concepts without feeling overwhelmed. The author provides explanations in both English and Spanish, making it accessible to learners at different proficiency levels. Additionally, the inclusion of cultural insights and tips throughout the book adds depth to the learning experience, allowing readers to understand the language within its cultural context.

My only criticism of Pitman's Commercial Spanish Grammar is the lack of engaging visual aids. While the text itself is informative, the absence of diagrams, charts, and illustrations could make certain grammar concepts easier to comprehend, especially for visual learners. Incorporating more visual elements would enhance the overall learning experience and facilitate a better understanding of complex rules.

In conclusion, Pitman's Commercial Spanish Grammar (2nd ed.) by C. A. Toledano is an indispensable tool for individuals looking to enhance their Spanish language skills in a business setting. With its comprehensive coverage of grammar rules, practical exercises, and specific commercial vocabulary, this book ensures a well-rounded understanding of the language. Despite the limited visual aids, the logical structure, clear explanations, and cultural insights make it a valuable resource for both beginners and intermediate learners.

With the best intention of justifying Messrs. PITMAN'S confidence in entrusting me with the compilation of a Spanish Grammar to form part of the series of "Commercial Grammars," I set to work to produce a book which, while avoiding pedantry and the agglomeration of superfluous and intricate rules which puzzle the student, should equally avoid falling into the extreme of coarseness which debases the subject under study, or the scrappiness resulting in gaps that perplex and discourage him. I have tried to be brief and clear in the rules given.

The vocabulary has been chosen carefully, avoiding the artificiality of too much commercial technology, but keeping constantly in view the object of the Series, viz., to produce grammars specially suitable for students preparing for a commercial career... Continue reading book >>
