Portuguese Grammar - A complete, concise and practical reference by Sonia Celegatti Althoff - (see table of contents, text sample, book description and comments from people who have bought my book below).
Portuguese Grammar can be used as a supplementary material to any other course, but it is ideal if used together with Sonia's Portuguese CD-ROM course because it complements it.
Portuguese Grammar is a self-study grammar book, written for use without a teacher. It is intended for students who are learning Portuguese as a second language and need a complete, clear, simple and practical grammar handbook for reference.
Portuguese Grammar will be useful for beginners, for whom it provides a foundation, advanced students who just want to brush up their Portuguese and teachers as a reliable reference and additional course material.
Portuguese Grammar is divided into two parts. It is two books in one:
Part I covers all the essential aspects of Portuguese grammar and it contains a list of often confused and misused words, an invaluable reference for all students of Portuguese.
Part II covers all the essential aspects of Portuguese verbs. It is divided into four chapters. The first chapter presents an introduction to Portuguese verbs; the second chapter presents Portuguese tenses in more detail; the third chapter presents tables of regular and irregular verbs conjugated in all tenses and the fourth chapter presents a list of approximately 850 Portuguese verbs, sorted into groups according to their special characteristics.
Portuguese Grammar presents a simple description of the language focusing on current usage. All topics are organized in grammatical categories and into short, easy-to-read sections, so it can be used selectively and flexibly according to need. Each topic focuses on a particular point of grammar, which is illustrated with clear and simple sentences used in everyday conversation between Brazilians. A broad and detailed table of contents provides quick access to those points you need often or find difficult.
Portuguese Grammar is a valuable tool to help you understand how the Portuguese language is structured.
