Basic English Grammar. Workbook with key

Basic English Grammar. Workbook with key

Basic English Grammar is a classic developmental skills text for beginning students of English as a second or foreign language. It uses a grammar-based approach integrated with communicative methodologies to promote the development of all language skills. While keeping the same basic approach and materials as in earlier editions, the fourth edition continues to build on the foundation of understanding form and meaning by engaging students in meaningful communication about real actions, real things, and their own lives in classroom context. Several of the new features are: information in the grammar charts highlighting differences between spoken and written English; step-by-step writing activities with models for students to follow; innovative warm-up exercises that precede the grammar charts and introduce points to be taught; newly created exercises to give students more incremental grammar practice; structure-based listening exercises that introduce students to relaxed, reduced speech.


Rough Interiors

Rough Interiors

The concept of taking the existing material as an idea is what is behind the expression Rough Interiors. The building and rooms are taken as they are and the traces of the past are preserved in the sense of remaining visible, into which the design concept is integrated. Old shells are given a new life with the aid of very different design interventions. It is the breaks, contrasts and contradictions instead of perfect harmony and smooth surfaces which characterise these works. The interiors presented range from low — budget to luxury projects. A fascinating interplay be — tween past and present emerges in the interplay of rough ceilings, un-plastered walls and visible concrete beams together with creative re-use ideas, modern materials and innovative form language.

Pedro, el protagonista, es huérfano desde su niñez. A instancias de su tío y tutor viene a parar para su educación al hogar sombrío de don Mateo Lesmes, en la austera y recoleta ciudad de Ávila. Preceptor esforzado pero pésimo pedagogo, don Mateo educará al muchacho en la creencia de que para ser feliz, o al menos para no ser desgraciado, hay que evitar toda relación con el mundo, toda emoción o todo afecto. Sólo la vitalidad y juventud del protagonista podrán, años después, ayudarle a superar el pesimismo inculcado. Sin embargo, los acontecimientos parecen obligarle a recordar lo aprendido… Delibes, con un impecable estilo que asombra aún más por cuanto se trata de su primera novela, consigue una espléndida obra donde la muerte, que rodea y golpea constantemente al protagonista, es vencida, finalmente, por la esperanza.

Serialize: Family Faces and Variety in Graphic Design

Serialize: Family Faces and Variety in Graphic Design

Creating a range of designs with a recognizable and continual element is a standard requirement well observed by many designers. Serial design can be seen everywhere from magazine covers to posters, letterheads, brochures and CDs to advertising. They need to be recognizable but yet have a fresh appeal every time — this book examines how designers approach the topic and looks at the applications and solutions they use to create a series of designs.
Creating a family face is crucial in order to leave a lasting impression. This is done by enforcing familiarity and producing a general recognizable atmosphere. Serialize features a broad range of applications, techniques and signature solutions employed by designers in serializing a design. It also expounds on the function and role of serialized design.
Through abundant examples, images and explanatory text by the designers themselves, this book investigates the key elements and links that distinguish serial designs from one another. This book provides guidelines to and examples of how to solve one of the most ubiquitous design “problems”.
