The Pasajes series is one of the most widely used and highly respected programs for intermediate Spanish courses in North America. As in previous editions, Pasajes is a multi-volume component program. Pasajes, Fourth Edition, now consists of three volumes — a review grammar, a cultural reader, and a literary reader — that are coordinated by theme and by language, chapter by chapter, across all three books. The result is a very flexible program that can be used in any combination and so is easily adapted to suit a wide variety of instructors and courses.The new edition of Pasajes retains the flexible format that works so well in the classroom but offers a new look and new features, along with refreshing new readings and streamlined grammar presentations. The Fourth Edition of Pasajes also includes an Instructor's Edition and a new authentic-footage video integrated with Lengua.
