SÍGUEME is the advanced intermediate student's book in the AIMING FOR PROFICIENCY SERIES. It is an outgrowth of TE TOCA A TI and DOS PASOS ADELANTE which provide communicative activities at the novice and intermediate levels.

SÍGUEME continues the communicative, proficiency-oriented approach for the advanced intermediate student at a level, which reflects a spiraling increase in difficulty that will challenge the student. In this edition, each activity is aligned with the World Language Readiness Standards.
