Readership : IB Diploma English A Language and Literature students - HL and SL


  • "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."
