Can one book have all you need to communicate confidently in a new language? Yes, and that book is Spanish Verbs & Essentials of Grammar. It offers a solid foundation of major verbal and grammatical concepts of the language, from pronouns to idioms and expressions and from irregular verbs to expressions of time.
