Welcome to the Premium Site for Puentes: Spanish for Intensive and High Beginner Courses


With less emphasis on explanations and more emphasis on practicing and using Spanish in daily conversation, Puentes, Fifth Edition builds upon the Spanish you already know to help you quickly advance to a higher level of competence. At the same time, it weaves culture into every lesson; you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the peoples and cultures of the Hispanic world through personal interviews and college-aged native speakers. The Puentes, Fifth Edition program – this text and its carefully developed and integrated components – is your bridge to a language-learning experience that is both rewarding and meaningful.
