The Everything Spanish Verb book is a fabulous little tool to carry with you
while learning Spanish. It could be characterized as the smaller, less-detailed
version of 501 Spanish Verbs. It has all the conjugations and definitions for
most popular verbs. I keep it with me for when I run across verbs I'm not
familiar with (or that are irregular).
This book is a quick, easy, handy reference and it has been immensely helpful in
my effort to learn Spanish.
For anybody who has to conjugate a bunch of verbs for their Spanish class, this
is a must! It is also great as a quick reference when writing papers, if you
want to be certain you got it right.
Ihad been studying Spanish for a while and basically was getting nowhere. My
problem was an elementary one. I wanted to learn to speak flawless Spanish
without studying too hard. I bought every book, tape and study guide on the
market.And I do mean every book, or so I thought.I had spent thousands. Quite by
accident, I picked up this book by Laura Lawless. Hmmm I thought here is one I
don't have. It was the best purchase I ever made. In just a few short pages she
cleared up the clutter in my brain which was really the source of my problem. I
just did not understand verbs. Her book showed me the way, so to speak.Once I
understood the purpose of certain words I was able to study. Yes, I said study.
I was able to study with a purpose because my understanding had been greatly
increased.I am now able, for the first time, to put sentences together without
stammering. I am improving to the point where I am able to converse,using
complete sentences. I found that ,yes you must do some memorization, but not as
much as I feared. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having the type
of trouble I experienced. If you are not having trouble, well, when you get to
reflexive verbs and the like, try this book. You will be having trouble without
I have been learning Spanish for just over a year and was dreading the time when
I would have to start conjugating Spanish verbs, but I purchased the "Everything
Spanish Verb Book" and found it would not be as difficult as I first thought.
The book is of a handy size, the introduction to conjugating is laid out in a
way that is easy to understand, following this are over 250 verb charts set out
for easy reference, and in the appendix another 1000 verbs are listed. I am very
happy to have this very useful book.
This is a really great reference guide to the conjugation of common Spanish
verbs. The first section of this book explains verb conjugation and the
different tenses in a very clear and concise way. It made it easier for me to
understand the different tenses, and when to use what tense. The second section
contains the conjugation of over 250 verbs. And the third section contains a
listing of 1,000 more verbs that are conjugated similarly to those in section 2.
I use this book quite frequently and keep it handy when I am reading a Spanish
magazine. I can quickly see what the author is saying when I come across an
unfamiliar verb. Although I do also own the book 501 Spanish Verbs, I find that
I always reach for the Everything Spanish Verb Book. It's compact size and clear
and concise explanations make it so much easier to use. I highly recommend
adding this book to your library of Spanish reference books.
