  2. Hey! I'm an English HL student and my first written task 1 is due... tomorrow! You guys have any ideas for a good written task in the topics Bad Language, Rhetoric, Bias in News media, Imperial Legacy or Translation, I would be, like, super grateful! Thanks:)):):)
  3. This document helps you format your IOC and tells you how to order what you're going to say. Hope this helps Format.docx
  4. I will be doing my first FOA in a weeks time and I need help coming up with a topic. I plan to do an oral speech and was thinking about the idea of 'comparing and contrasting the portrayal of women in Disney's movies' such as from Cinderella to Moana. But I really don't know what to do, or how to get started on my FOA! Does anyone have any tips on how to start and what to talk about??
  5. Hi I am in Junior and am starting writing my EE. I originally planned to write one on Bio or Chem, but I am not going to do them(too hard lol) Anyway, I want to analyze a text for my ee. Do you think this quetion is too broad? or fine? "How is humanism presented in Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro?" Please leave a comment; Thank you!!
  6. Hi guys, As I'm currently in the process of choosing my IB courses for next year, I was wondering what are the main differences between SL Lit vs SL LangLit in terms of the actual course and assessment? There seems to be a general consensus that a 7 in SL Lit is near impossible and that LangLit is the logical choice. However, I have heard that universities prefer students who have taken SL Lit. Can someone please verify this? For context, I'm a STEM oriented student taking Math, Physics, and Econ at HL and I am not sure whether taking SL Lit would take too much time off these already difficult subjects. Thanks!
  7. So I've got an FOA that is to be done soon, and my question is How does media affect the image and play of upcoming, young football players? What I want to do is look at two different articles and show how the article influences other people's perspective. I was then going to expand and go on to other different types of media. But what else should I do for my FOA? I need some help
  8. Hi guys! I've just entered the IB DP1 programme, and I am taking English Lang & Lit HL. I am actually quite surprised with the amount of literature we'll be doing in the course as I'd though it would only cover like 50%. Anyway, I was wondering wether you guys could share some insight on the subject and give some tips on how to score well in it. PS. I'm not a native speaker - it's my second language but I'd say I am nearly fluent.. I am also doing another language A (langlit), so bearing that in mind, will the two be too hard to juggle? I hardly read that often but I am good at essay writing.. and I am pretty sure I'll find the lang bit very interesting as it's in a way related to sociology - a strong interest of mine.
  9. How much would I approximately need to study to get high marks with the following subject combination? English Lang & Lit HL Physics HL Economics HL Bio SL Math SL Swedish Lang & Lit SL Also, kindly give your thoughts on these subjects.

    IB subjects

    Hey! I'm might entering the IB curriculum starting this week, so I would appreciate some response regarding my IB subjects; English Lang & Lit HL Economics HL Physics HL Math SL Biology SL Swedish Lang & Lit SL After thorough consideration, I personally figured out that this may be a reasonably challenging combination with a balance of essay writing and problem solving. However, I am concerned about me being prepared for the subjects academically. 1. English is not my first language, however throughout the years I've always attained a good grade in as it's been one of my stronger subjects. Being nearly fluent in writing and oral communication, is it possible to get a good grade in it even though I'm not a native? 2. Is Physics HL mathematically too hard if I take Math SL? From what I understand, physics is more about learning new concepts and applying them to problems using math as "support". Am I wrong/ is it solely based on math at a higher level? 3. Is Bio SL an easy/hard subject? I've decided on Bio SL though elimination of the remaining subjects I don't enjoy. I also believe that it'll maintain the rigour of my combination (as it's respected by colleges), but in a "less challenging" manner. I've also had quite some experience with the subject, hence why I believe parts of it will be more of a repetition. 4. Is it too hard to juggle two language A courses? Swedish is my first language and I've always been pretty good at in school so taking it isn't really a question for me- (But if you guys have had this subject, please share some insight on it's difficulty, content etc). Also, I'm assuming that the two Lang & Lit subjects go in line with each other since they're the same in terms of structure. Won't that make it easier, considering that I can do similar work in both subjects, only in different languages? To sum it up, I would be very thankful if you can answer as many above mentioned questions as possible + give me some general tips and insight on the subjects I'm taking (like how you find the subject etc). Thanks!!
  11. Hi everyone! I have an FOA based on part 2 of the Lang Lit course (Language and Mass Communication) coming up, and I was wondering if it would be appropriate to base it off George Orwell's 1984? Rather than analysing the text for thematic content and symbolism and whatnot, I'd instead discuss how language is used by the government in 1984 to influence the populace, touching on things like Newspeak, doublethink, as well as the Ingsoc party slogans, and then pointing out and analysing examples of things like this in the real word, showing the wider significance of Orwell's language constructions/predictions/whatever you could call them, and I'd also discuss one of Noam Chomsky's theories (the name escapes me right now), and how that applies. Thank you!
  12. My Lang & Lit written task is on Part 2: Language and Mass communication-How language is used to manipulate and persuade a target audience, specifically through bias. For this piece I thought of writing two football match reports on the same match, but from different origins. One would be a neutral well known and respected sports website, such as ESPN, while the other view would be from the club itself, which is always going to be a bit biased. My teacher said that I should think about just writing one match report, instead of two. Even though this will increase the amount of content I can put into it, I feel that having two match reports will really highlight the bias. What are your thoughts on what I should do?

  14. Anyone know any good LangLit resources or websites??
  15. Hi! As SL students probably know, we get guiding questions with each text for analysis. I was wonderig if it was required that we respond to them? The front of the paper says that it isn't required that we respond to them, so in my mock exam I wrote a commentary, like you would in HL. But soon after my teacher said we had to respond to the questions, so I was a little confused. Thank you!
  16. Hey guys, I'm doing my Written Task 2 on The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien and I have decided to write about the question" Which social groups are marginalized, excluded or silenced within the text?" I've done my outline and I'm planning to write about the lack of Veitnamese Presence in the collection, but what I'm stuck on is how to structure the whole essay. Can anyone please help me out? Thanks!!
  17. Hello, I am a student who will be starting the IB this year. I chose english SL as my subject but I am wondering if it would be better to have it as a HL. The problem is English is not my native language (although I have picked it up from a young age and is in English A) and always have trouble writing academic English. I generally get 5s on my report card and recently got a 6. Do you think it would be better for me to keep SL rather than HL if I am aiming at least a 6 in the IB for the English Course? Thanks.
  18. Good evening, I was just wondering if in paper 2, where we bring in the works we've read, we can include swearwords in some memorized quotes? We read the History Boys by Alan Bennett, and there's so much swearing in it, and in some of the important quotes that it's just kind of confusing on what to do. Should we write it with asterisks and only the first letter or not write it at all? I know it's a silly question, but one's gotta know... Thanks already in advance, and may the odds ever be in your favour for next week!!!
  19. Hey there, Could someone please explain which kind of IAs there are in Lit SL and LangLit SL and what they are? (And also word limits if known) Thank you
  20. Hi everyone! I'm in a pinch right now. I've been finding it hard to find an appropriate topic. What do you think of this topic? I'll be examining some authors who have openly declared that they rely on drugs or at least use it as a form of stimulant to keep them writing and perhaps look into how has this affected their work and has it enhanced their works. As for the writers, I might consider 'One flew over the cuckoo's nest' by Ken Kesey and 'Requiem for a dream' by Hubert Selby.
