Written by the authors of the current syllabus, this book will help address all the requirements of the new course at both standard and higher level. It will actively engage students in language and literature, allowing them to become informed and critical learners through understanding and producing language of a wide range of works, from poetry to political speeches to simple advertisements or graffiti. The range of exciting literature offers a fresh look at unfamiliar texts so that students are able to confidently encounter works and topics and develop and communicate understanding. Through interesting activities and model works, students will learn about the most current approaches to critical language in areas such as mass communications, language in cultural contexts and literature - in line with the new syllabus. Support is given for the assessment, including the oral commentary.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Students would like it. It looks serious and adult-like without being dull. The sample answers, rationales, examiner comments, oral activities and marking criteria would be very useful to my students. So many aspects of the written tasks or the orals or the exam papers that students have concerns about are dealt with clearly and helpfully. * Head of English, Turkey *
I think it is a very good book and will be of great help to my students. We are looking to 'adopt' it. * Miriam de la Teja, IB Coordinator, Colegio Williams de Cuernavaca, Mexico *
It is a good guidance for both teachers and students, especially for language which is a vast subject to be covered. * IB Coordinator, Greece *
The Oxford course books are the best ever resource for both teachers and students. They are practical, insightful and fully in line with the IB Course outcomes. * Pat Hanson, IB Coordinator, Academy of the Holy Cross, USA *
All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. * Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA *
We have adopted most of the Oxford IB course books for our school. We find them well written, well linked to TOK issues and age-appropriate. * Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore *
Your IB books are totally addictive. Thank you for developing such fantastic material. * Maggie Prieto, Head of Languages, Bachillerato Alexander Bain, Mexico *
