What Language B options does your school offer?

Recommended Posts

Our school only offers French SL, and sadly, even the non-IB only has French to choose from, although I think they're adding German and Spanish next year...

In our school, for the normal high school, they offer Chinese and French

But for IB, they offered Mandarin Ab Initio and Spanish Ab Initio

At first there were at least 14 students in each class, but it lessened as the levels were adjusting to IB Levels

Though most of the students stayed in Spanish, alot moved to Visual Arts from Mandarin cuz they had to memorize all the characters :P

I stayed cuz I keep thinking that Mandarin is similar to Korean (not the writing but some of the words) so Im still dealing with the memorization and stuff :P

my school in canberra, australia offers: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, Korean, Hindi and Latin. I know you can do French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese at HL or SL, but not sure about the others :P

I thought mine was the only one that offered so few choices, but I was clearly wrong!

All they give us is French and Spanish, and both SL.

I'm not too butt hurt, because I was set on French from the very beginning, but I wish we had the opportunity to take HL! :)

LOL, I love how many schools offer so many languages :) .

My school only offers ENGLISH B (yes english B, lol) and ARABIC B. If I knew about this B and AB Initio system I would have taken FRENCH B definatly! :)

My school offers spanish, french. and english for international students. And there are like 2 people who are doing latin as their second language. (I don't really get this. Since as far as I know, no one actually 'speaks' latin in their life.)

Doesn't seem like a very good choice, in my opinion. In my year, there are about 10 art students, but only 1 has reached a five as end-of-term-grade this far.

My school (in my opinion) pretty much sucks if it's about languages:

English SL/HL/A2

German SL/HL

French SL/HL

Spanish Ab initio

Spanish is new so I didn't get the chance to take it as one of my subjects, which aggravates me a lot. Plus, it would be nice if they gave at least the SL option as well.

Anyhow, I wish we had some cool languages to choose from like Italian, Dutch or Japanese.

For Language B, My school offers Chinese B, Indonesian B, German Ab Initio and Japanese Ab Initio, however, they are trying to phase out Indonesian B, and are replacing it with German B. Oh, and English B (I forgot about that one) :)
