These simple, easy-to-understand rules for conjugating Spanish verbs are effective learning tools for both beginning students and more advanced speakers who want to perfect their usage of Spanish verb forms. Going well beyond any other guide in the clarity and detail of its explanations--as well as the innovative manner in which individual verbs are linked to model conjugations--Spanish Verbs Made Simple(r) is the only guide to Spanish verbs a learner needs.
