  1. Depends on what you're doing. However, I would generally recommend you choose quotes that support the statement you've made. A nice help is using the PEE-structure, if you've heard of it? It advises you to first make your point, then example, then explanation. Hope that helps
  2. I just started 2.i a few weeks ago and I chose English A Language + Literature HL. I love literature so I was really excited about that part, but it turns we won't work with literature until 3.i. At first I figured it was fine, but the language part is just so boring to me! Basically, I'm considering changing from lang + lit to lit. I really like my teacher though, he's very charismatic and great at teaching, which I don't know if the literature teacher is (my school isn't very good at hiring good IB teachers). One of my worries, though, is if the literature course is 1) too heavy, and 2) just generally "boring" - what I mean is, do you get tired of reading and analyzing so many books? Are the books any good or are they heavy and dry to get through? Just, any thoughts on the literature course in general would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone in here has experience with both subjects, I would just really appreciate to hear your thoughts - which one did you find to be more interesting and is any of them more challenging than the other? Thank you guys in advance! :-)
