Por escritoemploys a step-by-step, task-oriented approach directed to intermediate and third-year students of Spanish. Students develop fundamental writing skills through a review of very specific grammatical topics and original reading selections. The material evolves from the simple to the complex, focusing first on description, then on narrative prose, and finally on expository writing of an argumentative and analytical nature. By following the prescribed method, students learn to write clearly and to communicate efficiently, avoiding the perils of direct translation. As a result, students increase their understanding of Spanish syntax and begin to develop a sense of style in the target language.
