  1. Paper 1 was really hard for me too, even though I was pretty confident before the exam...
  2. Hmm ok so the thing is that your research question has to be really specific, so that it allows you to go into great detail about it and keep on track. So I would suggest picking a way that directly impacts language (i.e. the internet) and isolating this problem in order to discuss it (talk about this with your supervisor though). For the cultural artifact, what you do is just focus on it and talk about what it is showing and then compare it to the 'real' or just other information (other sources). This is what I did at least. But of course you use as many sources as you need to back up your a
  3. I like your category 2A question and would be interesting to look at. However you NEED to make sure you have lots of good sources (books, articles) on this so that you have a good argument. Talk about the implications of using English words in French, like how it gives young people "l'envie" to leave behind their own cultures and traditions... And maybe just focus on the English language (and therefore, all the culture that comes with it) as opposed to American culture. OR you could talk about the impact of the Internet on the French language... because XX% percent of the Internet is in Englis
  4. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DNHSJ2V This is a quick link to a survey for an IA for Design Technology. Even if you don't do art (its about an artist easel), I'm really desperate for responses.... Thank you!!
  5. Thank you! As long as there are none specific questions that's alright. We probably won't have time to cover another single party state anyway (I think I heard something about Vietnam, though I have no idea really...) the thing is that there may be a question you might not be able to answer well with just two leaders. I really think that you should just go over another leader for backup, because you never know. I suggest doing Stalin because it was fairly simple. If you are in a really desperate state, i can possibly send over some notes to you via email.
  6. I havent read it but I can tell you immediately that it wasn't a wise move to upload this to the internet. When/if the IBO scans your work for plagiarism, this might come up!
  7. Obviously, this will be too late for your mock paper, but hopefully it will be helpful for you in the future nonetheless. Honestly, just look online at sparknotes and any academic articles. Look at key themes, key characters, motifs, symbols, underlying messages, what the playwright is commenting on, etc. Also, for paper 2 plays you should know about conventions of drama and know things like stage directions in the plays because there is always a question on that. As for the quotes, just reread your plays and highlight the most important quotes that you will be able to refer to in your exam
  8. Le livre que je lis en ce moment s'appelle "No et Moi" et je le trouve assez bien (mais je l'ai pas encore fini). En fait, ma prof m'a donné une liste de livres qu'elle a recommandé pour niveau supérieur: -Molla, Jean; Sobidor -Barbery, Muriel; L'élégance du Hérisson -N'Daye, Marie; La Sorcière -Pagnol, Marcel; La gloire de mon père et Le château de ma mère
  9. Hmmmm I think it would be best to do 2 films as you can then compare them. You will also have to have different secondary sources too. YOu are evaluating these artefacts in order to find out more about this specific culture. It will be weak with only one film I think. This is what my supervisor told me at least.
  10. Ah that was one of the ones I could have chose from my written assignment That's not specific enough. Maybe think of something thematically. Thank you! ? Do you think that something like...the contributions of these characters in understanding the hierarchal system inside the camp?
  11. Ok, so for my Written Assignment I have chosen the book 'If This is a Man' by Primo Levi. Moreover, I was wondering if my topic is appropriate/specific enough. My topic, which I can't bring myself to actually come up with a good title yet, goes something along the lines of: The use of Antonio, Lorenzo and Jean (three of the most important characters) in providing the reader with a better understanding of 'life' inside the camp (Auschwitz concentration camp, for those who have not read this memoir). I would appreciate any feedback Thank You
  12. I haven't done this yet, but just some general help might be useful..? Start by picking out the parts of the novel that link really directly and clearly to lack of self-control (your topic) Once, you've done this start looking more closely at what this is telling us, what the author is trying to say, why it is important and what it adds to the novels. This really should build the grounds to a steady presentation. Obviously, you have to build on this, these are just starting tips. Good luck
  13. Yes, (past papers) especially for History HL! Like you need to write so much and so quickly its crazy you will need to practice loads for that.. and same for English but not as much. For History, make sure you have really good notes that will make quick refreshers of your topic easier. Same for English, all your notes about poetry/prose and the works for Part 4 are easy to look through and make you feel confident about the material. Sorry, I dont have any advise for maths (im awful) and I dont do your other subjects.
  14. Well, actually, being brought up bilingual, like many in my family were, means they don't have to work at it at all as it is just natural to them. It is a lot easier than learning it at an older age as well. Taking into consideration that I was not brought up bilingual, I might be wrong, but this is my opinion: In IB, we learn the language very similarly to how children learn language - language B is based on understanding and communication, much less on grammar. I am taking German HL together with SL class, and we do very little grammar exercises. My teacher said that we will have no gramma
