Will there be explained in Spanish ?.

I tried the serial grammar in use but the explanation is in English.

two free books that seems full but I cannot fully understand the context.

I am a beginner.

I'll write in both Spanish and English, English because of the rules of the forum, Spanish to make sure phonology understand, I hope that's ok.

¡Bienvenido en htlal!

Por tu pregunta original: la serie Grammar in Use es, generalmente, la mejor que puedes utilizar. Yo lo utilizé mucho. Pero, no es fácil cuando empiezas el idioma, lo comprendo. Hay muchas cosas que puedes hacer para arreglar tus estudios. Brevemente, siempre está bien utilizas más que un solo recurso para apprender. Qué puedes añadir:

1.explicaciónes de gramática inglesa online. Pero no tan antiguas como estas. En solo un minuto, he encontrado estos sitios web, pero hay muchísímo más, porque casí todo el mundo está aprendiendo el inglés ahora.

2.un libro de gramática de inglés escrita en español. No los conozco pero estoy segura que puedes encontrar más que bastante gramáticas en librerías. Un consejo: podrías beneficiar más de un libro de gramática escrita par un hispanohablante que de un libro solamente traducido del inglés. Al fin, ya tienes un libro escrito par un britanico y el problema puede ser no solamente que las explicaciónes sean en inglés, pero también que las explicaciónes no sean tan bien hechos para on hispanohablante nativo. Prueba un autor quien era un estudiante del ingles como tú, hace años.

3.un manual del idioma. Un buen manual expliqua la gramática también, aunque suele estar menos sistemático. Un manual muy popular es Assimil. Estoy utilizando Assimil:El Alemán (y me gusta), Assimil: El nuevo Inglés sin esfuerzo puedría ser lo que necessitas.

Perdon mis errores, todavía estoy aprendiendo el español y aprecio todas las correctiónes. :-)

English translation:

Welcome to htlal. To your original question: The series Grammar in Use is, in general, the best you can used. I used to use it a lot.But it can be difficult when you are beginning the language, I understand. There's a lot you can do to improve your studies. Briefly, it is always better to use more than one resource to learn. What can you add:

1.Explications of the English grammar online. But that ancient like those! In just one minute, I had found these websites, but there are many more as the whole world is learning English now.

2.A book about the English grammar writen in Spanish. I don't know them but I'm sure you'll find more than enough grammarbooks in any bookstore. A tip: You might benefit more from a book writen by a Spanish native than from one just translated from English. After all, you've already got a book writen by a British and the problem might be not only the explications being in English but as well not being writen that well for a native Spanish speaker. Try and author who used to be a student of English like you years ago.

3.A language course. A ood course explains the grammar as well, even tough usually tends to be less systematic. A very popular course is Assimil. I've been using Assimil:El Alemán (and I like it), Assimil: El nuevo inglés sin esfuerzo could be what you need

Sorry about the mistakes, I'm still just learning Spanish and I appreciate all the corrections :-)
