Differences of English and Spanish Grammars, and Their Bearing on American and Mexican Cultures
Ruiz, Arturo Zárate
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v5 n2 p142-59 Win 2017
In this article, I notice that English now is a dominant language and I highlight some features which actually make English language great. I also consider that these facts may lead a Spanish language user wrongly believe that applying English peculiar grammatical strengths to Spanish would make Spanish a better means of communication: he would rather lose the opportunity of using Spanish language in its best, and prevent him to enjoy a Hispanic culture invigorated by this best use of Spanish language. To avoid this problem, I identify and recommend some Spanish peculiar features that make it strong in its own way, and make it a very rich means of communication.
