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, Fifth Edition, 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 thus is easily adapted to suit a wide variety of instructors and intermediate courses. The Fifth edition of Pasajes retains the flexible format that has proven successful in programs around the country while offering a host of changes that keep the materials topical and current.
