Intensive work on verbs

Mark-S105 May 1, 2016, 1:35 pm
I would like to supplement my lessons in Rocket Spanish with some daily work with verbs, more than is offered in the course. Is there a separate section in Rocket Spanish for verbs and verb tenses? If not is there a website, program, or other resource that would be a good supplement for verbs?

Thanks!

Hola Mark,

The following  resources are very helpful : The Big Red Book Of Spanish  Verbs  by Ronni Gordon, Spanish Verb Tenses by Dorothy Richmond.  "Verbarrator" which is a computer program. I believe all three can be found on Amazon.

Saludos,
Ricardo

Awesome Ricardo!

I went to Barnes & Noble looking for Spenish Verb Tenses and found "Practice Makes Perfect - Complete Spanish Grammar" by Gilda Nissenberg. Sat on the floor looking at both books for about 30 minutes and they are very similar.

Complete Spanish Grammar has same workbook layout as Spanish Verb Tenses, which I like, and most of it deals with verbs. Plus there are chapters on other aspects of grammar that I definitely need help with. I believe this will be a huge help!

Thanks for the tip!

Mark: Quite some time ago I began compiling the verbs, and sometimes nouns and adjectives that derive from verbs, from the Rocket Spanish lessons into a flashcard set on Quizlet. I am now up to around 350 verbs in their infinitive form which is a regular part of my study. I usually run through some of the cards, then stop at one and work through the various conjugations for that verb. Here is a link to the set:

I have the whole series of Practice Makes Perfect for Spanish, about 10 different workbooks and love them all.  Very good for all your grammar and verb questions.  I also enjoy their Vocabulary and Conversation workbooks.

I have used the Visual Link programs online.  Their Intermediate and Advanced verb programs are good but not cheap. They call them Level 2 and 3 I think.

Probably the best language tool I've come across. Actually love it more than Rosetta Stone and Duolingo
