Listening skills are normally regarded as the most essential skills to develop for second language learners. The IBDP Language B New Syllabus of 2018 (First exam in 2020) has added “Listening comprehension” into the examination to emphasise the importance of listening. To Win: Chinese B Listening Comprehension Skills, published on April 2018, was designed to meet the immediate needs for teaching materials to train listening skills and to prepare for IBDP Chinese exam. It was written according to the five prescribed themes included in the IBDP New syllabus. Under each theme, three topics are presented to cover a wide range of areas, such as family life, leisure activities, online world, future studies and career, environment, society and economy, and so on.
There are also different types of exercises included in this book. Students will find them particularly helpful for developing the listening skills. Two sets of mock exam papers for SL and HL respectively are attached for students to assess their competence.
