What is Pasos?

A best-selling Spanish course for adult learners

Pasos 1 is the first part of the best-selling two-stage Spanish course for adult learners who are either starting from scratch or who have a basic knowledge of the language. Whether learning for work or pleasure, Pasos gives a thorough grounding in the language, enabling learners to speak, read, write and understand a language spoken by over 400 million people.

What will I learn?

Key language structures and communication

Pasos 1 introduces the key structures of the language over 14 thematic lessons with the emphasis placed firmly on communication. Authentic reading and listening materials are used extensively for a wide range of lively activities based on everyday situations in Spain and Latin America.

Vocabulary and grammar

From the outset, a realistic range of registers and vocabulary encourage development of the essential skill of comprehension. Clear examples and explanations make the grammar easy to absorb, and emphasis is placed on the acquisition of a wide range of essential vocabulary from an early stage.

Culture and skills for daily life

This edition takes account of developments in modern life, such as new technology and practical communication. Units begin with a Prepárate page of activities and include plenty of grammar tasks. The Rincón Cultural feature presents short texts of cultural interest and each unit ends with an Autoevaluación self-assessment checklist enabling students to review what they have learned. Audio track references on a page-by-page basis ensure that listening activities are easily identified and new online resources are a useful addition to this highly successful course.

GCSE level material

Pasos 1 covers the skills and structures required at GCSE level and equivalent.

How will I learn?

Balance and variety

Balance and variety are prominent features of the Pasos course: freer activities accompany graded, accuracy-based tasks, and there is a balance between presentation and practice of new language items and between the study and use of grammar and vocabulary, the cornerstones of language-learning. There are regular opportunities for revision and consolidation, and vocabulary and grammar support are given both at the end of each lesson and in full at the end of the book.

Group or independent study

Pasos 1 is ideal for group study and is also useful for independent study and revision.

What is new in the third edition?

Improvements and additions

The new edition has improvements and additions based on ideas and feedback from tutors across the country. There is also now simple navigation between the book and CDs, with clearly marked references in the Coursebook.

Interactive quizzes and exercises

Brush up and reinforce your learning at home, with fun, interactive online quizzes and exercises. Or use them in class with the group.

New Speaking and Grammar guides

With speaking becoming ever more important in today's accreditations, the Pasos 1 range now offers a new 2-CD Speaking and Listening pack. There is also a new dedicated Practical Grammar reference and practice book. It contains clear, accessible grammar explanations with examples and extension in both Spanish and English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good but kinda need the audio pack too 14 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a great book, well presented and good to teach yourself. There's a lot in it that refers to the audio support pack though and you need to buy that separately. There's also a student workbook which is good but not essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secret Squirrel 12 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback
Excellent book for a Beginner. Nicely laid out with practice sessions as well as vocabulary at the end of each chapter. Also relevant to every day situations which you would find in Spain e.g. ordering in a restaurant, asking directions, meeting people.
