* Written and developed by practising IB teacher and examiner, Marie-Laure Delvallee * A wide range of activity types are provided, to ensure students develop their receptive, productive and interactive skills, and to encourage them to learn and use the language actively. * Grammar is practised in context throughout the book, whilst dedicated boxes focus on key grammar issues. * Students are prepared for both the interactive and individual oral assessments with exercises throughout the book focussing on the skills required for each, along with a range of visual stimuli. * Intertextual activities focus on the skills needed for written responses, through a range of lively and topical texts. * Examiners' hints identify common pitfalls and provide insight into how students can organise, clarify and present their ideas to achieve the highest marks in their examinations. * Questions from real past exam papers are given at the end of each chapter to enable real-life exam-hall practise. * Key fact boxes and culture features place the material in real-life contexts and give additional information to aid students' understanding of a topic.
They also prompt further enquiry and interesting cultural discussions. * Clear links to TOK throughout the book are intended to stimulate higher-level thinking skills and force students to question their ideas and the source of their knowledge. There is also a dedicated TOK chapter at the end of the book to expand on these themes. * An accompanying Teacher's Book is also available, including schemes of work, comprehensive lesson plans, answers to all exercises, vocabulary lists and practical advice and support with assessment. * Fully supported with online resources at www.pearsonbacconline.com
