  1. Good day, I have to perform an FOA and I decided to use the Malala speech to analyse. I have been confused to whether this is linked to part 1 or part 2 of the course. So which part of the course would this particular FOA idea be more relevant to link to? Is the analysis of a speech supposed to be for part 1 or part 2 of the course? With which learning outcomes and topic (possibly)?
  2. Hello there! I'm very new to the IBDP and we're starting our first FOA presentations in about two weeks. We've been told to make a detailed outline of our FOA by tomorrow, and I'm still unsure of what topic and text I want to choose! So, I was wondering how to find texts to use for your part 1 FOA, as our book doesn't provide any good ones. Are there any good websites containing good texts? I've tried searching around for a bit, but I can't seem to find anything good... I'd appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. - Matt
  3. Hi, I am currently preparing for FOA. It is about persuasive advertisements in Part II. So for my FOA, I'm comparing two advertisements that were published by the same company in the same time. I am comparing the use of language in the two advertisements which are targetting different audiences, one for men and one for women. I have written half of my script and have done a brief analysis of the two ads. But I am not sure whether I am doing it in the right way. Can you take a look at my script and comment on the things that are wrong or that can be improved?? https://docs.google.com/document/d
  4. Hey Guys! We are doing our FOA's in part 2 about mass communications, and i can't think of anything good to do. Do you guys have any ideas on what I should do? Or what did you guys do? I would really appreciate your help!!
  5. Hi guys, I have a proposal for FOA: Part 1 Language in Cultural Context due on Monday, which is in like tomorrow, and I still have no ideas and I'm still so confused. The teacher has only 'taught' us about Martin Luther King Jr's speech analysis and that's it... Like I don't understand about how we are supposed to do this.. Like we have to have a role when we are delivering our FOA? We're not allowed to give like just simple presentations on the analysis of something? I don't understand... Also, how am I supposed to relate language in culture? Like for example, gender and sexism or
  6. For the FOA that we are supposed to do in part 1, I chose to analyse a speech (ich bin ein berliner). I thought about this for a while since analytical skills aren't tested specifically in the FOA and I decided that it DID in fact satisfy one of the part 1 learning outcomes - "analyse how language and meaning shape the audience and purpose". My focus would be the historical and social context of the time period in which the speech was delivered and how it shapes the overall meaning of the text. When I asked my teacher if this could be a suitable topic for the FOA, she told me that analyt
  7. Can anybody who's already done their FOA2 just share what they did here? I need some inspiration..... I was thinking something along the lines of the language of lyrics in pop songs but that feels really cliche. Also, our teacher allowed us to do the first FOA with a partner. I really want to work with my FOA1 partner for this second one too- is that allowed?
  8. I will be doing my first FOA in a weeks time and I need help coming up with a topic. I plan to do an oral speech and was thinking about the idea of 'comparing and contrasting the portrayal of women in Disney's movies' such as from Cinderella to Moana. But I really don't know what to do, or how to get started on my FOA! Does anyone have any tips on how to start and what to talk about??
  9. If I'm doing a TED Talk as my style of presentation, how do I put the analysis of my text smoothly into the presentation
  10. So this is my first FOA and I'm struggling in deciding on a specific topic. We're required to present for 15 minutes, so I need a lot of material on it. I'm thinking about doing something around the topic of translation errors and how they affect context, but I don't know how to present it. If anyone can suggest improvements, that would be great.
  11. Hi, Are advertisements (and references to movies/shows) suitable primary data sources for an FOA on cultural and gender stereotyping? Thanks! My FOA is in 2 days!!
  12. 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 i
  13. 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 ne
  14. Hi, I'm in grade 12 and our English FOA is coming up. The topic this time is media and I have an idea to analyze Donald Trump's use of language through his tweets. It's a very relevant topic and I'm looking for any ideas regarding what activity would be good. Thanks.
  15. Hey guys, I'm approaching my first IB internal assessment, the FOA 1. My topic is language and identity and I'm doing the song by Kendrick Lamar - the blacker the berry. I am just wondering how I should structure my FOA and if it is necessary to memorize what I'm going to say or read from cards. Thanks.

I would like to ask you for innovate ideas or topics from part 1 or 2 of English A Language and Literature, things that are not that common or a topic that it will be easy to manage it and get a 7. I would really appreciate it! Thank you!
  18. So I've got an FOA that is to be done soon, and my question is How does media affect the image and play of upcoming, young football players? What I want to do is look at two different articles and show how the article influences other people's perspective. I was then going to expand and go on to other different types of media. But what else should I do for my FOA? I need some help

  23. Hello, I will be doing my English FOA soon and it will from part 2 on language and mass communication. I will be focusing on the portrayal of asian stereotypes in the media, specifically the representation of asians in pitch perfect 2 (character Lilly). Are there any tips or suggestions for how to structure the FOA? I am slightly lost in terms of starting it and am not sure how to structure it. Thanks!
  24. Hey guys, so I just started the IB like 2 weeks ago. I'm taking Lit Lang and we've been told to get a primary text to class (I'm guessing it's for the FOA but I'm not entirely sure). Our topic at the moment is Language and Gender, so do you guys have any suggestions on what text/source to choose? I'm thinking Jane Eyre, but that's gonna be so tedious if we have to do quite a lot of work with the text in little time. Thanks!
