French

 

This International Baccalaureate book is designed to assist with revision for the various aspects of the new French B course at both Standard and Higher Levels.  These aspects comprise the Oral, the Text Handling (Paper 1), the Written Assignment and the Written Production (Paper 2).  There are examples of different types of texts as well as practice exercises or questions for both papers. 

The book also presents guidelines and advice on how to approach the Oral examinations, for the Individual Oral and some techniques to help with the Interactive Oral. 

Wherever possible, texts and questions are intended to reflect as closely as possible the style of material used by the International Baccalaureate Organisation but bear in mind that there is probably no better material to practice on than past IB papers themselves, even if they were designed for the old syllabus.

The book also contains sections containing grammatical advice, presented in clear, easy to read boxes, with checklists to assist in revision. The book provides plenty of tips and techniques which will help to maximise performance in the exam. There are also practice exercises which will allow candidates to find out what aspects of the course they need to devote more revision time to.
