  1. As in the tile. Was it Europe, or Japan again? What aspect of the road to war did it focus on specifically (eg. Anglo-German relations in May 2019)?
  2. Ok, I went and asked one of the teacher and he said it should be ok as long as I find a teacher/tutor willing to cooperate with my school. So everything worked out fine. Once again, thanks everyone!
  3. Thanks for your imput everyone! I might talk to one of the teachers to see if it would be possible to try to implement the solution SC2Player was talking about. Otherwise I'll try to hunt down all the people interested in one of the language's for groups 2 or 6 (or for the 7th optional outside of diploma course) as Gabi said. I looked through the schools in Poland and one in Wroclaw offers Japanese ab initio- but I haven't found any with Russian (tside of A lang) which was pretty suprising. Nomenclature, thank you for your imput as well. I thought Russian would be relatively easy as I know Polish at almost A level, I have no experience in German. Maybe the DoS still needs Spanish speaker's but I'm trying to get a job in a specific agency which requires security clearance and is subject to the Defense Language Instuture and they clearly state they have enough German and Spanish speaking people.
  4. Hello fellow IBers. I have the following problem. My school only offers two language B classes- German B and Spanish B. I already know Polish but since my school is in Poland already runs it as A lang and I had reached the conclusion that without a comprehensive background with Polish schooling doing the school course is nearly impossible. Now I started doing German B, however the problem I have is that it seems to be a waste of time. I want to work for a certain agency in the US government (and the government in general if I fail to get in) and have been told by pretty high ranking people and read in official documents that German and Spanish are languages which no one needs at all since they already got tons of people who know them. I've narrowed the list of languages down to two- Russian and Japanese (at the ab inito level). The first should be relatively easy to learn as I know Polish already. Japanese on the other hand is much harder, but since there is a phonetic writing system in place (Kana) you aren't required to learn too many of the Kanji symbols and there's more high quality materials and entertainment to use as a base for studying it at home. NOW HERE THE QUESTION ACTUALLY STARTS So due to all I've written about above, I want to get my school to start up a new class. As far as I am concerned the only requirements are #1- 3 people willing to take part in it and #2 a teacher qualified to lead it. My school has no teachers qualified for any B languages outside Spanish and German. Assuming condition #1 is met: Since we are still in "pre-IB" would it be possible for the school to hire a teacher who would become an IB qualified educator by next year and have him begin teaching us this year? Would it be possible for my school to arrange online classes with a teacher from a different IB school or with IB qualifications in general? I want to know this before I reach out to my coordinator so that I can make a stronger case towards establishing such a new class (The IB call center staff is no longer considered to be a good info source after they told me of things contrary to the basic regulations doc). I know I could try to learn another language for creativity, but that's hard to do since I would have to study German in addition and for me getting an ok grade in German is currently more time consuming then keeping up 6's in all other subjects. Thank you for your help in advance!
  5. Maybe you can squeeze your phone between the wall and detector, carry it in an envelope adressed to a teacher or try to get it in through a open window (concelaed in a lunch box or sth), idk, not an expert in phone smuggling. You can try wearing ridiculous amounts of metal to fool the people checking or hire some gang to burn down your school. No other ideas. Hiding things in plain sight is often a good trick, like with the envelope I recommended, you could even hand it to whoever is by the scanner and they probobly won't realize its a phone. If its made well enough and you act with confidence.
  6. More topics you say? MI6 agents have immunity on all crimes commited abroad- or in other words a liscence to kill (the CIA officaly does not) Hate-speach censorship = or =/= censorship of freedom of speach China as a friend vs China as a danger to the democracy based world order Is China on the road to democracy or more restrictive autoritharianism? Legalization of Marijuana and other drugs Are children really tricked into becoming child soldiers and exploited or is it their choice that is being made? Censorship of the press in extrodinary circumstances (eg. War) Is democracy truly the best system of governance Need and realism of NATO equivelant in the Pacific Free trade, always good? So here you have a list of my ideas, just make sure you truly do it in the roundabout, multiple pov way you speak of. Otherwise you might have problems as IB doesen't want no political activism in CAS.
