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 seventh 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 new film feature in Lengua with pre- and post-viewing questios and an accompanying image. In addiiton, Literatura and Cultura each have three new or revised readings. All three volumes have a modified interior design, as well as updated and revised activities and photos.
