Call, Mary Emily; Sotillo, Susana M.
Hispania, v78 n1 p114-21 Mar 1995
Describes a study conducted to test the hypothesis that focused conversations with native speakers held on a weekly basis will contribute to the development of learners' internal grammars of Spanish. This study centered on college students as they developed an appreciation of the different contexts requiring the preterite or the imperfect tense through interaction with native speakers.
