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. In this edition, a number of new pieces of literature have been added to Pasajes: Literatura. In addition, the reading strategies sections have been streamlined so students can still get the essential information but can move on to the readings themselves more quickly. Finally, each chapter of Pasajes: Literatura, Fourth edition includes the new guided writing feature called Papel y la piz.

The new edition of Pasajes retains the flexible format that works so well in the classroom but also 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.
The three volumes of the Pasajes program are coordinated by chapter themes, vocabulary, and grammar points. This organization means that the topics, the language, and the structures covered in, for example, Chapter 3 of the review grammar are the same as those covered in Chapter 3 of either the cultural or the literary reader. This format allows instructors to use any of the texts by themselves or in conjunction with one another. Pasajes: Lengua can be used by itself for a one term grammar review, either Pasajes: Literatura or Pasajes: Cultura can stand alone as a reader, or instructors can use the grammar with one or both of the readers.
The hallmark of Pasajes is its intelligent treatment of topics that speak to students and their own interests. The chapter themes go beyond the traditional first- and second-year topics to include topics that truly promote a deeper understanding of the Spanish language and of Hispanic cultures. Some examples are topics dealing with stereotypes, death, and beliefs and ideologies. Topics are approached from a cross-cultural, sociological point of view, with the overall goal of the Pasajes series being to challenge students not only to learn about the language and cultures of the Hispanic peoples, but also to think critically about their own culture. Thus, learning Spanish with Pasajes is not only interesting, but also becomes personally relevant.
