Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Teaching Spanish Grammar with Pictures: Whitley, L
Submitter: Beilhart Jackie
Description: Teaching Spanish Grammar with Pictures is a valuable tool for teachers
looking for a way to show students how grammar produces meaning. It makes
available in a digital format the full set of 406 posters designed by
William Bull to illustrate grammatical contrasts in Spanish. These bold
illustrations clarify difficult-to-understand points of grammar such as ser
vs. estar, subjunctive vs. indicative, and preterite vs. imperfect.
Originally published in 1961, the posters remain remarkably useful for
explaining Spanish grammar in visual form. Bull believed that linguistics
should be used in the service of language learning, and the success of The
Visual Grammar of Spanish was the result of its grounding in linguistic
analysis.

This reissue of Bull’s classic posters on DVD-ROM provides versatile JPEG
images of all the posters to easily incorporate into Power Point
presentations and worksheets. It includes an instructor’s manual on the
disk that presents background on the materials, explains the concepts
behind the images, and
offers suggestions for ways to use them in the classroom.

Language labs that purchase a copy of Teaching Spanish Grammar with
Pictures will automatically receive rights to (a) post an electronic copy
of the content on a secure (password-protected) network for use by current
students and faculty at their institution; and (b) loan the number of
purchased copies to students. For other permissions, please contact the press.
