Designed to prepare students for the ab initio French course for the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, Panorama francophone is divided into two parts, each of which includes a coursebook, a teacher's resource and a workbook. This unique resource is totally international in approach, it contains material especially selected to engage older teenager learners, and it encourages students to think and reflect at a level that is suitable for an IB Diploma student. There is a strong emphasis on developing intercultural understanding and on French as a world language. Across the series the key IB Language ab initio topics and themes and all elements of the examination are covered. All the language is taught and practised in context, ToK, CAS and conceptual understanding of language are fully integrated into the learning, and francophone culture takes a central role.
