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, the sixth edition of Pasajes consists of three volumes, all coordinated by theme, chapter by chapter: a review of grammar (Lengua), a cultural reader (Cultura), and a literary reader (Literatura). The result is a very flexible program that can be used in any combination and thus is easily adapted to suit the needs of a wide variety of instructors and intermediate courses. The new edition offers a brand new interior design, brief new cultural readings with accompanying photos, updated and revised activities, and more!
