This coursebook helps students explore the new IB Diploma ab initio themes (first examination 2020): identities, experiences, human ingenuity, social organisation and sharing the planet. Designed for students with no previous background in French, this coursebook develops well-rounded language skills and encourages learners to become open minded, international citizens – reflecting the mission of the International Baccalaureate. Authentic texts and vibrant images from around the world are specifically selected for older teenagers and to give them an insight into different cultures and viewpoints. Answers to the coursebook activities and audio accompanying the listening exercises are in the teacher’s resource.
Covers key IB Language ab initio topics and themes, as well as all elements of the examination, with TOK and CAS integrated into the learning.
Big questions at the start of each unit introduce important world issues and ensure students’ learning reflects the mission of IB Diploma – ‘to create a better world through education.’
Updated to provide students with opportunities to develop a conceptual understanding of language (audience, context, purpose, meaning, variation) in line with the revised Guide.
Encourages practising French in context through stimulating activities covering all aspects of language acquisition: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Written with intercultural awareness and understanding of French as a world language.
