Italian term or phrase: Elementi
Buongiorno.........da inserire in un curriculum: "Elementi di grammatica e sintassi della lingua Spagnola". Per la seconda parte della frase, avrei pensato: Spanish sintax and grammar", ma su "Elementi" non ho proprio idee.
Grazie in anticipo!

Fundamental Spanish grammar and syntax

One option

"Fundamental ..." is essentially synonymous with "Basics of ..." or "Elementary ..." as suggested by others above. To me, all 3 solutions suggest beginner level, rather than intermediate.

"Fundamental grasp of Spanish (grammar and syntax)" might work in this context.
Otherwise, simply "Basic Spanish" as Laura has suggested.

Asker: Colin, se questi elementi erano già a un livello intermedio, posso ugualmente usare "Fundamental?" Grazie!
