  1. Hi guys, I'm in English A Lang Lit SL and I'm about to write my written task 1. So I'm decided to write an opinion column, yet for example if I choose to do something with feminism, which points are we supposed to include? Is the opinion column a critique of the stimulus material? Is it opinion on the chosen specific issue in general supported with facts? I'm just confused about how you can show your knowledge and understanding of a topic studied for Part 2, for example. Thanks in advance for responses.
  2. Hey guys, So I'm looking for a topic for my FOA and Written task. I'm wondering which parts I can use, since I already used part 4 for my written task and i can't remember about the FOA. What are the possible combinations of doing the two new ones if anyone can help me please? Also, do you have any idea where I could search for a topic since I'm really nervous that my topic would decrease my grade. Do you have any full marks examples? What is the best approach towards doing your FOA or written task, because i think that I'm doing something wrong and my teachers won't tell me? Any advice is highly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

  5. Hi everyone, We were asked to write our WT1 on 'A Streetcar Named Desire,' and I wanted to ask whether there are any rules for text types we can write. Can we do a brochure or article? Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks
  6. Hello guys, so I got a 5 (nearly a 6 as suggested by my teacher) in my HL English L&L for my Y1 final exam, but I am super worried cuz I need at least a solid 6 for English, since my other HLs are Economics and Chemistry which I am getting a 6 and a 5 respectively. I need a total HL points of 18, so I am aiming for a 6-7 in English, 6 in Economics and hopefully a 6 in Chemistry too. But for now, can anyone suggest how can I ace my internal assessments cuz I heard that for a 7 in English you need very strong IAs? We did one FOA already, I got a 6, any tips for getting a 7? (I am doing my next one on textual bias) My teacher hasn't really explained anything about the IOC, I have read 2 books and 3 poems for it by now, is there any time-efficient methods to jot notes and analyze these texts, so when I look back in January, I don't have to re-read everything. I am studying Lost Honour of Katharina Blum, Lamarie Project and Duffy Poems by the way. And lastly, does it matter if you submit WT1 or WT2? Thanks so much!!
  7. so my first draft of my written task is due next week and i need help narrowing down my topic, it's: Meursault experiences psychological difficulties throughout the novel due to his unstable emotions and state of mind. is that even good in the first place?? pls someone helpmeee
  8. Hey guys, So I've decided to go with question 6 of the prescribed questions which is, "How has the text borrowed from other texts, and with what effects?". I recently found out in a youtube video that many disney movies are adapted from other texts and novels. so I thought of doing my WT 2 on how the disney movie Peter pan is adapted from J.M Barrie's The boy who wouldn't grow up. However I was wondering if this topic is actually doable cause it involves a novel that was not studied as part of our syllabus. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks
  9. Hello everyone, I'm busy writing my written task part 2, using the book 1984. I chose to work with question 2, which is: 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? I chose to write an essay on how George Orwell's '1984' would be different if it would have been written before the Industrial Revolution. Do any of you have some good ideas for me? I would love to hear them. Thank you all in advance!
  10. I have to write a written task in German A Language and Literature. I decided to defend the bavarian dialect, based on an opinion piece offending this dialect. By sticking to the third or fourth question (How and why is a social group represented in a particular way? Or. Which social groups are marginalized, excluded or silenced within the text?). But since I am bavarian myself, I am unnerved by the possibility of my piece being an opinion piece, since it could sound like I'm defending my culture, which I will indirectly do. However, if I use concrete evidence to back up my claims, would it be a good idea? Or is the risk of me missing the point of the actual topic too high? Thank you.
  11. Hi pips!! I just wanna make sure... So, I have researched about Written Task 2 and according to my research, WT2 ONLY has to have the following: 1. Outline : includes the question, the section of the course, the text (e.g. novel, play) and the aim. 2. The essay However, my teacher told me that I should add an abstract of 200 words. Can someone please tell me if there is a need for an abstract?? Your answers will be greatly appreciated.
  12. I have used many ideas in my English A written task from other opinion columns. I'm afraid if I cite the sources, the examiner might think that my WT is not original and take away a few marks. For example, if someone had written " Have you ever seen a crying baby? Babies are aware.." Then I would write "If you have ever seen a baby crying, you will notice that babies are aware ....". Is this plagiarism? I am using the exact same ideas but just chaning the words a little. Can the examiners detect this? And what would happen if they find the opinion columns I have used?
  13. Hi, I'm in desperate need of help with my written task. I need to write my WT for part 1, and I've thought about pretending to be a politician and write a speech about animal rights, where I would try to use my language as effectively as possible to make the audience believe in me. Does this sound like an acceptable idea? We've had language and politics as a topic in class so I've therefore tried to connect it to that.
  14. 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.
  15. Hey guys, could anyone please tell me on how to write a blog for the SL english A written task please? Like the characteristics and what is essential to include, so that the examiner identifies my work as a blog... Thank you so much!
  16. Hi guys, I need help coming up with ideas to use for my Written Task 1 on Part 2 of the English A LangLit course: Language and mass media, basically we have to pick something from mass media (an article, news report, ad campaign, etc.) to analyse and we can choose from different text types. I want to write it in the form of a letter to the editor, so I was wondering if anyone had any good articles or campaigns they recommend?
  17. Hello guys, I have a written task coming up on part 1 and part 2 and i have no idea what to do.

Any ideas from IB students of the past. I wanna try to make it interesting. Thanks in advanced to anyone who can help me!!!!
  18. Hello, I'm really curious as to anyone's experiences in how their IOCs & Written Tasks for English Lang Lit A have been moderated. Did your marks go up/down? Were you disappointed/happy about them? Were they the tipping points between the grade boundary of (x-1) and x? Were your teacher's predicted grades for them close to what they have been moderated towards? Thanks, Looking forward to hearing all your answers!
  19. Hi! I am to find a research question and topic for my Written Task 2 on Part 1 - Language in a Cultural context. I have no idea what to write it on. We've read Persepolis, A Doll's House and Pygmalion so far. My favorite books are Perks of Being a Wallflower, Fault in Our Stars, Wonder, etc... I've considered: "To what extent does society exclude women of lower class from their individual freedom in Pygmalion?"; yet not sure whether or not I will be able to write 800-1000 words on this Any ideas?

  22. So let me start off with the fact that my teachers are basically clueless with what the internal assessment is for Spanish B, besides the oral. I am currently working on this 400 word essay that sounds like the Spanish version of the English Written Task 1. Should I approach it with this thought in mind? ;Choosing a genre, following it's structure, in Spanish, and connecting it to one of the core topics. I have it basically done, I just need a structure and to make sure I'm doing this right.
  23. I'm doing my WT1 on A Streetcar Named Desire, and was wondering if it would be acceptable to write it as an extra scene to the play? What sort of things should I pay mind to, how to get high marks, etc.? Cheers!
