  1. For Paper 2 in English A Lang & Lit HL, my class studied multiple poems written by Philip Larkin and Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore". My question is: in Paper 2, we have to refer to two texts that we have studied in class, so, if I choose to cover "Kafka on the Shore" and Larkin, should I talk about only one of his poems? Or can I talk about a number of his poems?

    Lang and lit EE!

    Hi! I am doing my EE in languages and literature. My research question so far is; How does rupi kaur discuss sexual assault and the female voice through poetry in her works; milk and honey, and the sun and her flowers? I wanted to write an extended essay surrounding poetry that dealt with sexual assault and the female voice (don't really know how to put it, but I mean how woman are portrayed through the media etc) through a feministic eye. Rupi Kaur is very modern and I thought she would be interesting to look at since her work has gotten a lot of attention and I watched her Ted talk and it was amazing. I'm having such a hard time getting started and I've been trying for weeks. Idk if I should choose someone to compare her work to but my advisor told me I could just focus on her if I wanted to, will that score well? I've tried doing an outline and have read many articles about the metoo movement and the portrayal of woman as objects in media. Im having such a hard time and need help!!!! Sincerely, a stressed out IB girl
  3. English-wise, is a campaign launched/introduced/established/etc?
  4. Can anybody who's already done their FOA2 just share what they did here? I need some inspiration..... I was thinking something along the lines of the language of lyrics in pop songs but that feels really cliche. Also, our teacher allowed us to do the first FOA with a partner. I really want to work with my FOA1 partner for this second one too- is that allowed?
  5. Hi, does anyone have any tips for preparing for the paper 2 exam? I've been compiling quotes so far but there are just so many quotes I feel would be useful and I don't think I can remember all of them. I remember the plot points and things like that, but for some quotes I'm having trouble analysing them (finding specific literary features). Any tips would be appreciated!!
  6. Is it too late to switch from literature to Lang and lit in December of IB year 1? i mean couldn't I catch up over December break? ??? I need advice

    Help in IB subjects

    Hello everyone who is experienced in IB!!!! I need help. I am currently in grade 10 and choosing my IB subjects, I want to take two science higher level courses and was wondering what is another HL course that could probably help me get an IB diploma. I am also not doing as well as I expected in English I currently have a score ranging from B+ to A- , and our English course is mostly based on analysis of poems and short stories. We had two diary entries that I really enjoyed writing and I really want to score high in English and was wondering whether Lang and lit might be easier than lit. I am also really interested in Psychology but most people tell me that if I do psychology instead of business and management HL it might make me struggle because of the amount of work included. Here is the list of my courses, currently: (I really don't want to struggle because I am taking Bio and Chem HL) Biology HL Chemistry HL Bus&Mgt HL Farsi SL English SL Math SL Can someone please help me!! I plan on majoring in biochemistry in the future and I really want to get into a good university like UCLA. I was wondering if the subjects I chose could probably help me land myself there? Please Help me and someone tell me if what I am taking is too rigorous!!

  11. So I am considering doing my EE in english, I'm doing the Language and Literature coarse, and though english may not be my best subject, I think I would enjoy writing my EE on it (more than other subjects anyway). I have been thinking about either writing about the works of Dr. Seuss, John Green's "The fault in our stars" or maybe George RR Martin's "A Game of Thrones" but I don't know what i should be looking at, or how to get a proper topic. If anyone has any suggestions, it would be much appreciated
  12. Hey guys, What's a good idea for my WT1? I'm looking to do something relating to "language and power". I want to do either a speech or an article (preferably article). Thank you, Stefan
  13. I want to prepare for Paper 1 LangLIt exam next year. I was wondering if someone could send me Paper 1 Texts or lead me to a site where I can find them. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi! Could you please help me out by telling me if this is an acceptable EE topic? Topic: Recent explosion of mass media influencing the concept of beauty.. Temporary RQ: To what extent do the changing standards of beauty due to the explosion of mass media in recent times have an influence on people? Basically I want to talk about how social media portrays body image in a positive way (Upworthy, Dove campaigns, MissRepresentation) and negative way (beauty magazines, adverts, tumblr), and the effect of this representation on young women. How should I go about this? How can I narrow down the research question?
  15. I am having trouble searching online for tips and guides for the Paper 1 and Paper 2 Language and Literature exams and my final exams are coming up soon. As always I came to the IB survival forum at first as I always found guides for the different assessments but to my surprise I did not find a guide for these assessments. So I would like to the members who are more experienced in these tasks to create a guide for these two papers as it would benefit a lot of the members in the present and future who are using this forum. Thanks for all the people who create such guide and give tips, your work is really appreciated.
  16. Im worried that I didn't write it correctly or it's not "strong" enough is it possible for anyone check my paper?
  17. I'm writing up my written task one however, I wasn't given any clear guidance with the rationale for my piece. This is the first written task I've done. How do I write it? What do I include? Are there any specific pieces of information that I need to include? Thank you!
  18. Hello everyone. I'm doing my EE in group 3 of Lang and Lit, which focuses more on media and it's effect rather than a thematic analysis of a book, perhaps. I was wondering if anyone has done this before, and if you could please give me some tips or good references. If you could refer me to where I can read good past papers, that would be amazing. Thank you all. Have a great summer!
  19. I am reading Chronicles Of A Death Foretold and it hasn't been written in the usual chronological order What is the effect of this? I know that the style of the novel is of a more journalistic one since the author used to be involved in journalism but what effect does it have on the reader?
  20. Hi, I am currently working on my HL written task (Task 2) for English. Since I have done my other WTs on Part 1,2,3 respectively, I have to work on Part 4 for this task. I plan to do "If the text had been written in a different time or place or language or for a different audience, how and why might it differ?" under Reader, culture and text and use poetry by Robert Frost. What I noticed from the IB guide is that the example questions for this question in the guide are all "an article", "a comic", "a literary work". My questions are, will it be ok if I include more than one comic with the same theme for this task? Also do you guys think my topic is workable? Thanks~!
  21. i have been searching for a foa topic since long but i couldnt find anything. i have my foa next week.. could anybody help me with the topic ?? thank you
