Ausgewählte Tempora und Modi des Spanischen

Selected Tempora and Modes of Spanish

Ein Arbeitsbuch

A Workbook

Spanisch gilt gemeinhin als leicht zu erlernende Sprache. Wer sie erlernt, bemerkt jedoch bald, dass die korrekte Anwendung der Vergangenheitszeiten, die Umformung in die indirekte Rede und der Modus Subjuntivo besondere Probleme bereiten. Bei den textbasierten Einsetzübungen zu den Tempora Indefinido und Imperfecto werden die Erzählperspektive, die Logik des Textaufbaus und der satzübergreifende Kontext für die korrekte Tempuswahl genutzt. Dieses Arbeitsbuch führt die Studierenden grundlegend in das spanische Temporalsystem (und dessen Unterschiede zum Deutschen) ein und festigt anhand satz- und textbasierter Übungen den Umgang mit den ausgewählten Tempora und Modi.

Spanish is generally considered to be an easy-to-learn language. However, those who learn it will soon notice that the correct application of the past, the transformation into indirect speech and the subjunctive mode pose particular problems. The text-based introductory exercises for the Tempora Indefinido and Imperfecto use the narrative perspective, the logic of the text structure, and the sentence-independent context for correct tempo selection. This workbook introduces students to the basic Spanish temporal system (and its differences to German) and uses sentence- and text-based exercises to consolidate the handling of the selected tenses and modes.

THE GOLDLIST METHOD – A SCIENTIFIC CRITIQUE AND WHY IT’S A WASTE OF TIME

Here's an exchange about methods at times heated (in the discussion at the bottom). The author does not beat about the bush as to what he thinks is useless.


Ha! I guess I HAVE been wasting my time!

I've said several times I am not sold on the gold list method, but i keep doing it. The reasons, I think, are a bit if a refutation of the above, so I will list them and let anyone who bothers to read them evaluate:

1. The time in my schedule and the space in my brain available for intensive study is full. I have a language course; I take lessons on italki; I read intensively and extensively. This method allows me to list and study vocab without focused concentration. I have no doubt that focused concentration methods would be better, but I use this method when I just can focus that hard.

2. The list gives me great pools of info to study. I compile them from new vocab I consider important that I find in other methods, so the lists are great compilations if the things I think I should be studying. And if I want to choose another method I have a great customized resource.

3. The lists are self-cleaning. By having to remove 1/3 every distillation, I'm only reviewing the most important things I need to study.

4. I don't like flashcards and don't want to do them in physical or virtual form.

So there it is, not a defense if the gold list but rather an explanation of why I use it. If I were studying for a vocabulary test, it isn't the method I would use, but as a supplement to core study methods that lists and reviews vocab, I think it's alright.

If you read the comments section you see the author backtracking some when people point out he incorrectly interpreted some of the method. Author seems a bit rude to me, after all different strokes for different folks.
