FRENCH HL

Recommended Posts

I'm dropping french next semester so that I can study it on my own to get a better grade. Does anyone know of any books I should or sites that have sample tests or anything that would be useful? I'm fluent in french, so I don't need any of the basic stuff.
Thank you!

If I were you, I would focus more on familarizing yourself with the writing tasks and past papers. There are sites that offer past papers, but also don't forget to review past grammar, as this can make a huge difference in your mark. (Don't forget orals as well!)

...and telling people to go find illegal materials is okay since when?


As for my advice about French... um, read a lot, and practise writing exam type essays. The essay seems really important, so it's very useful to be confident that you can write a good essay in an hour and a half. Also, I'm sure your school has plenty of past papers you could practise on - it's something I definitely think you should do, because there are certain types of questions you need to know how to answer, and you need to be aware of the way to write a good réponse écrite. If you ask the French teacher or IB coordinator I'm sure they can help you.

Good luck! Edited by Hyperbole

Oh wow I didn't realize that the essay was so important. I'll for sure ask my ib coordinator for sample essays and questions. Thank you!

I've deleted the argument over past papers. Please don't post any links to free past paper sites.
