What is Spanish Grammar in Context?

Spanish Grammar in Context is a unique website that provides detailed grammar explanations and examples of the Spanish language with accompanying practice questions.

How is this site different from other Spanish grammar sites?

  • This on-line resource illustrates each grammar point with real-world video examples from Spanish speakers in Texas.
  • The practice quizzes  available for each section are all based on these real-world examples.
  • Each grammar point is visually represented with a word cloud so users can quickly see the types of words used most commonly for a given topic.
  • Variation boxes like the one below highlight variation in usage across dialects of Spanish.

Spanish varies depending on where a speaker is from, their age, and background. This variation isn’t forgotten or set to the side; it is incorporated into the grammar descriptions of many topics.

Who is the site for?

This site is designed for educators and students of Spanish as well as for native speakers who wish to better understand Spanish grammar and terminology.

Where do the examples come from?

These examples come from the Spanish in Texas project, which profiles Spanish as it is spoken throughout Texas today.

How is it “open”?

Spanish Grammar in Context is an open educational resource, which means that you are able to use, remix, and share these materials for non-commercial purposes.
