OverviewiChinese Book 4 is developed based on the new International Baccalaureate® (IB) syllabus for Language B Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL) programmes (first assessment 2020). It consists of six units that are organized around three prescribed themes. Each unit contains three main reading passages and one main passage for SL and HL respectively. Following each passage are important vocabulary with pinyin and English translation, explanations of useful language points, as well as plenty of class and post-lesson exercises and activities. Through contextualized study of the Chinese language, texts and themes, students will develop interactive, productive and receptive skills, as well as intercultural understanding and international mindedness.
