    French B HELP

    Hello, I've been taking french b for the past 7 months and I was wondering if someone could tell me whether you are supposed to learn all the lessons in each of the tronc commun topics? My french teacher is the CAS co-coordinator as well, (I'm the only one taking french B) however he is very competent at teaching the course but I've missed classes many times because he was busy. And we haven't finished some of the lessons in tronc commun, we've skipped some over- Is it a requirement to have learnt all the lessons in tronc commun? We've learnt two lessons from each of the three tronc commun topics, that is four lessons so far. Is the current pace at which the course is progressing a problem? Would it be necessary for me to learn some of the topics on my own? How are your classes paced? Did you guys complete the tronc commun already, or how much are we supposed to complete in roughly 7 months? Any reply is welcome.
  2. Hello, I'm currently in DP1 and I'm the only one taking French B. I just feel like theres so much to know to be able to score decently, I'm really clueless as to how I can improve from my current level of french to a level of proficiency. I struggle alot to comprehend and speak french and it is very intimidating. I dont have anyone to practice french with either. Could someone give me some pointers as to how I can build a base for myself and get a good grip of the subject in terms of reading, writing and speaking?

    @voh26 I havent made significant progress so i guess i could use some help
  5. For the FOA that we are supposed to do in part 1, I chose to analyse a speech (ich bin ein berliner). I thought about this for a while since analytical skills aren't tested specifically in the FOA and I decided that it DID in fact satisfy one of the part 1 learning outcomes - "analyse how language and meaning shape the audience and purpose". My focus would be the historical and social context of the time period in which the speech was delivered and how it shapes the overall meaning of the text. When I asked my teacher if this could be a suitable topic for the FOA, she told me that analytical skills were assessed in Paper 1 and that I would only score 15 marks for the analysis. However, she added that she wouldn't stop me from going through with this topic and that I could score higher if it was a critical analysis of the text. I am freaking out since it took me along time after I left the group that I was originally in and had to brainstorm for a new topic- which exhausted me mentally Could anyone offer any suggestions as to whether it would be a good decision to continue with my current topic or advice as to what could possibly constitute as a critical analysis? PS I have to present my topic on MONDAY so it would be very helpful if you guys could offer suggestions before then. Thanks
  6. I started ib about two weeks ago and almost everyone's taken AB. I already have prior knowledge since I did my GCSEs, but I've heard that B SL is quite hard, especially if youre not fluent (my case) So i was wondering if anyone could give some advice as to how I should prepare and study for the course and if it it would be too difficult for me? (since I'm not fluent)
  7. In my school I heard that only one of my seniors took a french HL and he was a native- and HE found it really difficult! Personally I like french so working hard for it wasn't really a problem for me; I'm worried because I'm not very fluent - Can I get decent marks if I take HL?
