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.Trisha Dvorak is the author of 'Workbook/Lab Manual t/a Pasajes: Lengua (Cuaderno de practica: Expresion oral, comprehension, composicion) (English and Spanish Edition)', published 2002 under ISBN 9780072481761 and ISBN 0072481765.
