    History EE help

    I don't think this is a good question as it does not allow for a lot of exploration, and you will probably have a reallllllly hard time looking for sources on this. If you want to do Korea, try something related to the US, like to what extent was Truman or MacArthur responsible for the exacerbation of the Korean War? Why did the US enter the Korean war, etc.
  2. I need to make some graphs showing the different reaction pathways, but I don't have the equation of the line, and only have two points to plot, so where can I make the graph? I need an online software, or something like excel, because I don't want to draw it by hand, what can you recommend? Thank you.

    History HI

    Maybe you could explore something related to the McCarthy trials? Another possible idea is the interpretations regarding the reasons for the great terror?
  4. Thank you! I think I'll stick with my original idea I guess and just make sure to present and analyze it properly.
  5. It would be better if you just focus on Spanish. French AB initio is probably not very hard (I take French B HL) if you've take some french before, or if you speak any similar language fluently (like Spanish or Portuguese). Otherwise, you are just complicating yourself too much, and I think Spanish will be much more useful for you. Definitely take Spanish B SL, it is a challenge, but with adequate preparation and determination it won't be that hard. If you read a lot, practice your oral presentation, and practice the writing tasks you'll do well in Spanish B.
  6. I speak French and Spanish and honestly I would say Spanish can be much more beneficial. I don't know much about airline management courses, but simply put Spanish is more useful because of the amount of people that speak it and the number of countries where it is spoken. Granted, AB initio will not get you to a very good level of spanish, it will give you the basis and spanish is also one of the official languages of the UN, and many countries in the world speak it! While both are similar languages, and they will be challenging to learn because of their rules and grammar and other particularities of the languages born out of latin, Spanish might be easier to learn in term of grammar and listening comprehension, but it is harder in terms of pronunciation. I'd definitely rule out german because it is an uncommon language that is spoken in few countries, although a great language.
  7. Are you talking about Spanish A, B or AB initio? Spanish AB is REALLY easy, especially if you've been taking spanish lessons for that long. On the other hand, Spanish B might be a bit more challenging, but with practice and preparation it should not be that hard. If you don't like your teacher very much that's fine, many of the things you learn in Spanish B you can learn and practice by yourself so don't worry. But if you are talking about Spanish A, honestly, unless you speak very good spanish I would not recommend you taking Spanish A. I take this class, and I am a native spanish speaker, but I still struggle quite a bit and few people in my school do very well in this subject.
  8. Hi, I'm also taking French B but HL, and although I didn't do quite as well in my end of year exams I had a bunch of resources just laying there that I definitely could have, and should have used. This page in general has some good links you could explore: http://www.tremplinfle.com/ib-french-b.html The first thing is for the oral exam, you could start preparing your notes for each photograph and practicing your presentation and the possible follow up questions. For the written paper, practice doing different topics in different format of writing, this textbook https://mirror.uu.sg/ib/TemplarKnight98/eBooks/Group 2 - Language Acquisition/OXFORD/French B - Skills and Practice - Abrioux%2C Chrétien and Fayaud - First Edition - Oxford 2013.pdf is great for helping guide you in the different formats of writing. Lastly, for the reading paper, I just recommend you read some short stories in french, and if you don't have books in french you could perhaps try reading the news in french, just small fragments each day, and write down vocabulary that you did not know.
  9. You can use material that you produced earlier on, although I'd recommend using a mix so present some information and then play some of the tapes.
  10. Hi! I'm having similar problems, it is hard enough to write about yourself as it is, let alone having to write in my case four different application letters. What I decided to do, and it has worked quite well, is write a list of things that you want to mention in all of the letter, for example your leadership skills, or if your fluent in another language, and maybe even things that interest you or you do related to what you want to study. Then write a list of things that are exclusive to each country you are applying to, and once you have each list you can start drafting your essays. Maybe you could write the main point of each essay, and then add in all the stuff that they should include in common? idk im probably as lost as you are.
  11. Hi! Well it definitely depends on whether you want to take HL or SL chemistry, and how much work you're willing to put in. Doing IGCSE chemistry IS incredibly helpful if you ant to do chemistry IB because many of the core content is similar, however it is not essential to do IGCSE in order to do IB. If you want to, and I would strongly advise you do, take some time to read over the chemistry IGCSE syllabus and the IB syllabus, identify the topics that you would have seen in IGCSE and perhaps read a little about them so that you are better prepared to take IB chemistry (especially if the other people in your class DID take IGCSE chemistry, so that you can keep up their pace). That being said, chemistry is surely one of the most challenging subjects, so perhaps you should start of doing SL and, if you feel you are up for it and will work hard enough and have the necessary grades, consider taking it in HL.
  12. Hello! I have to hand in my first draft for my chemistry investigation in one week and I've read ever single guide and checklist on how to do it. But my problem is I don't know what to do it on... My original idea was to investigate how the amount of baking soda in bath bombs affected the rate of reaction between the bath bomb and water, and how the temperature of the water affected. But now that I've seen so many examples, I think this idea lacks a great deal of science and data. At this point I don't have access to a lab, and the material I have at home is very limited. So I wanted to do something that was just data based, like creating tables and graphs and discussing the results. I thought about doing something related to global warming, more specifically a comparison between the presence of different greenhouse gases in Mexico, China and Norway or something like that. But I don't really see much chemistry in it... PLEASE HELP ME FIND AN INVESTIGATION TOPIC THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE A PRACTICAL EXPERIMENTTT
