  1. After much thought, I have decided I'm going to try and write an English A language-based essay. Here's hoping it'll be fun! This is my Extended Essay diary- maybe it'll be helpful to someone! If anyone else is writing an English A essay, please do let me know- maybe we can help each other! Creating a Topic I actually came up with a possible idea quite a while ago, but I forgot about it in favour of a tie between a history essay and an English essay. I wanted to write it about music, but after reading the EE guidelines for a Language A essay, my idea sailed right out the window. Oh well- I managed to come up with a new idea after discussing some of the ideas with my friends. For now, I have permission to go ahead with my topic from my supervisor, so I'm working on finding a research question and finding some more sources. Research Question As of now, I have a pretty firm research question, and I've already started researching! I'm reading some background information about the topic so I can better analyse my sources, and I've got to say it's really interesting!
  2. Hello, I was wondering if there are any restrictions on the uses of fonts and graphology in general in written tasks for English A (Language and Literature). I'm writing a diary entry for my written task and I wanted to use a handwritten font for it. Thanks.
  3. Hey guys! My class recently did a few in-class Paper 1 samples, and I did absolutely horribly in them! I seem to always get the wrong main idea and impression of the poem that we get, and the teacher told me they were not convinced by the examples I used to back-up my main idea. So I was wondering! Does anyone have any tips for analyzing poems you have never seen before? I already am aware of the "Read the poem at least 3 times before analyzing" rule! What can I do to be as close as possible to the real main idea? Are there any works that you guys can recommend me to read to gain a better insight of poem analysis in English A Literature and Language? (I'm HL, btw!)
  4. Hi my fellow IB classmates I am a Y11 student currently taking my first year of IB (it's been 2 months already as of this post) at an international school in Hong Kong. However, there's a special case for me. Originally, I am leaving for Canada or the United States to continue IB or IB/AP due to the limited subject choices offered here in HK. Due to certain events, I broke my forearm and in the process also severely damaged my ulnar nerves, preventing me to leave as constant medication is required. On the up side, my parents allow me to leave next year to continue IB in Canada or the states but there's some concerns raised from me at this point. Can you only take 1 language&literature subject? Or do you have to do at least 2 from group one? Here are my current choices in HK HL: English Lang&Lit, Geography, Physics SL: Chinese/Cantonese Lang&Lit, Business Management, Math Here is the subject list I wish to alter once I'm there: HL: English Lang&Lit, Geography, Physics SL: Music SL, Business Management, Math Is it possible? Furthermore, what will happen to my Music IA scores and what can I do with the predicted grades I got for Chinese Lang&Lit? Any help/response will do Thanks (sorry for the long passage)
  5. Can somebody please tell me some compare and contrast points between 'A Passage to India' by E.M Foster and 'A Doll's House' by Henrik Ibsen. I have exams coming up and I keep asking my teacher for notes and she doesn't give anything, I am completely lost and could use a little help please
  6. I've decided to base my EE on Language and literature. The two books I've picked is The Catcher in the Rye and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. However, I am having a difficult time forming and EE question. My EE advisor suggested basing my EE on how The perks of being a Wallflower is a modern version of The catcher in the Rye, but we are afraid that the EE will go off the Lang and lit area and.focus more on culture. Please do give your thoughts on this idea and/or suggest a better question. Your help is very much appreciated, Thanks
  7. I moved countries in the middle of my IBDP and I can't find proper experienced IB teachers anywhere to teach me English literature. I have done 2 units and have a predicted 7 grade in both my IOP and WA. Should I switch to language and literature and do a two year course in under 8 months?
  8. Hey!! I am doing my EE in English language and literature and it's a category 1 and it is on The Perks of Being a Wallflower. My research question is "To what Extent were the books that were mentioned in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" had an impact on the mentality of the protagonist?" the thing is, I am starting to work on my EE but I do not know where to start. And I do not know if I have enough content for my EE!! Could I get some Guidance??
  9. Hey guys! First time here on ibsurvival, hope all of you are doing well It's time for me to chose my subjects for IBDP, so I was going through the choices and I stumbled upon English A: Language and English A: Language and Literature. I was just wondering the difference between the two of them, the advantages and disadvantages, and the features of HL and SL in both Language, and Language + Literature respectively! Thank you in advance! ali.asif
  10. So I decided to write a letter from the perspective of a Jewish refugee who moved to England during WWII. My teacher said I might have to reconsider the perspective because I'm pretending to be Jewish and writing a letter in English, when I would most likely be writing in German. If I state in my rationale that I have intended for the text to have originally been written in German and my text is a translation, would this solve my problem? I don't know if this would work since it might be not authentic enough or something.
  11. I decided to change my extended essay topic yesterday and I wanted to know if you guys think my new topic and research question are alright. I'm doing it on language and literature. The books I picked are A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin and I'm planning on talking about symbolism in Sansa's storyline but I'm not sure if my RQ is alright or if I have to modify it because I don't want it to sound too simple or overdone, so if you guys could give me your opinion I'd appreciate it a lot. The question is: What is the importance of symbolism in Sansa Stark's storyline in A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin?
  12. Hello guys, I have a written task coming up on part 1 and part 2 and i have no idea what to do. It has to be based on a few videos that we have watched and texts we've read (george orwell shooting an elephant or i want a wife by judy stiffer) This is due in a week and as usual i have no real idea what i'm doing. Any ideas from IB students of the past. I wanna try to make it interesting. Thanks in advanced to anyone who can help me!!!!

  16. Hello, so basically I read a post about EEs on English A1 and it said that you mustn't choose a novel that you've studied in class. I just wanted to make sure if this is true or not as I've been looking around for a while and I haven't found anything that would support this. Thank you!

    This is a sample English Language and Literature SL/HL response to a set of two texts. While the extracts used for the Paper 1 is a past exam for English A2, Paper 1 for A2 and A1 Language and Literature the same. This was a sample response given to be by my English Language and Literature teacher. Does not include marks, but I am assuming it is a pretty good response when she is handing it out as a sample response. Now: time for random emoticons. :sam: :sam:
