El arte de escribir
By Borsi, Emilia and Rogg, Fay R.
EL ARTE DE ESCRIBIR is an intermediate to advanced writing skills text designed to help students become better writers in academic and practical settings. In the three main units of the text, students learn a simple method for summarizing and comparing articles and other texts, put together a resume in Spanish and learn about simple correspondence, and gain an appreciation for literary writing styles. A final unit provides practice with the mechanical aspects of writing Spanish (accentuation, syllabification, spelling problems, and so on) as well as advice on using a dictionary. The text prepares students for real-world situations as well as for advanced literature courses (taken by most Spanish majors). Written completely in Spanish, the text is appropriate for native and non-native students.
