    • Hey
      So at my uni (i major in economics) B&M is not needed, nor is math HL needed. I don't think Economics HL is needed either.
      I think the best bet for you is to figure out which unis you like because the requirements tend to ping pong a bit (EG: London School of Economics needs HL math). Best of luck
    • When you "begin" (loosely speaking) to learn a language, start with vocabulary and basic tenses. There are several websites online that show you technique to memorize about 500 vocab words (or just a list of words to know), and if you are not a beginner you probably know more. Important are the prepositions, pronouns (eg ce qui, lequel etc) and some common verbs. The adjectives and adverbs are often derivatives of these and/or incredibly similar to english. It's strongly recommended that you read french material at your level. Basically if you are just starting to read in french, any kid (say 3rd grader)'s fiction book should do. It's confusing because the things you learn in class might not be the most natural or efficient or even useful way to learn a language. So you have to dedicate effort outside of the curriculum if you really want to do the IB. Later as you become more aware of sentence structures. You can keep a notebook of interesting sentence structure you see in your reading and begin to regularly write few sentences daily in French. If you write a 3-5 sentences a day, over course of a year and before you enter IB you would have written equivalent length of 20 or more 400 word essays.  Listening is not tested in IB (or not heavily tested, as you do need to understand your teacher in the IB orals) so it's ok if you are not need to be strong in that aspect, but in French class you should try to speak to others in French just to reiterate the sentence structure and vocab you have been developing. It is somewhat ironic that in French class you get most exposure to the least important component in IB exam, but ideally that reinforces other aspects of learning a language.
    • I’m currently in pre ib and I’m doing relatively well in most of my classes. Currently I have a C in French 2 although it isn’t failing I have not been improving at all and this score will only go down. I’ve studied my arse off and tried attention in class but I can’t retain the material. Also the teacher doesn’t speak any English in class only French, which is probably the right way to teach foriegn langague but I can’t understand. Anyways I think I’m pretty boned and I’m pretty sure there’s no way to get the diploma without foreign language. So... any suggestions on what I should do. I could leave the program but I don’t really want to. Am I wasting my time?  P.S. Any tips for French is much apperciated 
    • I was thinking of rather doing it along the line of creating a Volkgemeinschaft, so more on the social rather than artistic side. However, I can't find anything specific to look at in that area unfortunately.
    • My school uses Managebac like for everything. However like I don't really like it though... But there are many opinions about it 😅
