Self-taught Language A: Literature, is it available at HL?

Recommended Posts

Also, does anybody have the list of languages available as language As? In fact, what does self-taught Literature entail? Do you need a tutor or do you teach yourself?

I probably will not do a self-taught language A but it's nice to know.

Self-taught Literature is only available at SL. You are not required to have a tutor. Languages are listed from p 72-75 of following document: they are mostly European or Asian languages. You may put in a request for any other language at least 18 months before your exams. For the self-taught IOC, students choose 10 passages and IB will pick one with their question for you to answer in 20 minutes preparation and 10 minutes commentary (p 240 241). Coordinator or another literature teacher will guide you in the selection of works and passages.
