Professor Dee L. Eldredge's Teaching Spanish, My Way is a treasure trove of information and a resource manual of over 370 pages to aid Spanish teachers / professors in their efforts to help students learn Spanish. It contains the author’s philosophy of teaching; suggestions for course and class preparation; principles of teaching that he follows; general linguistic, syntax, lexical, phonetic, and morphological explanations; Spanish language rules; Spanish historical, cultural, and geographical information; handouts that have been used a lot by the professor; and cards that have been utilized with great success to teach Spanish, especially at the beginning of classes. Would you like to read information about how to take charge of a class and more about the responsibilities of a teacher? Chapter 1 of the book gives the reader the author’s philosophy of teaching and much information on his perspectives relating to a teacher’s responsibilities. Topics such as being in charge of the class, being prepared for everything, grading practices, using time efficiently during class, presenting grammar, implementing oral drills, students speaking as much Spanish as possible during the class and before / after class with the teacher, being courteous, and others will help you be a better teacher / professor. Would you like to be better organized and run your classes more smoothly? Chapter 2 details many subjects important to course organization, class preparation, and class instruction. As part of course organization, syllabuses, schedule of classes, handouts, marking up textbooks, folders, copies, tests, and examining classrooms are discussed. Appertaining to class preparation, planning of the activities for the next class, grading, recording and placing papers in folders, handouts, and tests are explained. Concerning class instruction and activities, the following topics are presented: directing a class, starting a class, reviewing homework, asking questions, presenting new grammar, practicing new grammar, presenting new homework, reading, using handouts, giving tests/exams, grading and reviewing tests, and ending class. Would you like to have some excellent rules that would help you teach your classes more suitably? Chapter 3 lists the many rules that the author follows in teaching his classes. Some deal with the interaction with students, others with the organization of the classroom, others with the preparation of classes, and others with the way he organizes everything. Would you like to have explanations of grammar and linguistics that very much help you teach more competently? Chapter 4, which is by far the longest, gives explanations of many items in linguistics that can greatly aid Spanish teachers---such as synthetic and analytic languages; declensions; syntactical notation; thematic relations and relators; complementation; arguments; vocalic and consonantal languages; adverbials; markers; a sentence; moods; voices; raising; pro-forms; noun phrases; cases with pronouns; pronouns after prepositions; clitics; leísmo, laísmo, and loísmo; relative pronouns; clitic doubling; determiners; homonyms; verb phrases; verbal complementation; verbal particles; verbal aspect; verb forms; the English “dummy it”; usage comparison of auxiliary verbs in English and Spanish; prepositional phrases; prepositional complementation; modifiers; position of modifier adjectives; conjunctions; multiple meanings of English and Spanish verbs and other words; affirmative and negative words; question words; false cognates; Spanish and English verb problems; the silent h and u; juncture; phonemes; diphthongs; phonetic stress; vowels and consonants; representatives of sounds; spelling problems; cognates; and usage of linguistics in the classroom. This chapter aids the teacher to deliver the whys and wherefores to many grammatical problems—as for example, why the h became silent in Spanish, where the name California came from, and why the Spanish chose habla

In the last 25 years foreign language teaching has been able to increase its efficiency through an orientation towards authentic language materials, pragmatic language functions and interactive learning methods. However, so far foreign language teaching has lacked a sufficiently strong theoretical framework to support the teaching of language in all its aspects. Arguably, such a linguistic theory has to be usage-based and cognition-oriented. Since cognitive linguistics - and especially cognitive grammar - is concerned with conceptual issues against the larger background of human cognition and because it is based on actual language use, it becomes a powerful tool for dealing adequately with the main issues of a pedagogical grammar. A pedagogical grammar aims at providing all the essential linguistic patterns considered relevant by theoretical and descriptive linguistics for the preparation of teaching materials and their exploitation in foreign language instruction. The volume contains thirteen contributions organized into three parts. In Part 1 Langacker, Taylor and Broccias introduce the basic grammar concepts, rules and models that are available in cognitive linguistics and which are directly relevant to the construction of a pedagogical grammar. Meunier, on the other hand, describes how such a grammar could benefit from corpus linguistics. Part 2 looks at some cognitive tools and conceptual errors with contributions by Danesi and Maldonado and also reconsiders contrastive analysis in the papers by Ruiz de Mendoza and Valenzuela & Rojo. Part 3, finally, discusses language-specific constraints on a number of linguistic phenomena such as the construal of motion events (papers by Cadierno and De Knop & Dirven), distinctions in the tense-aspect system (papers by Niemeier & Reif and Schmiedtová & Flecken), and voice (Chen & Oller).
