  1. Hey everyone, I'm a current IB student and my CAS project is creating a guidebook for IB students to help them decide on classes and plan their time in high school. I'm searching for volunteers to fill out this form, which is just general advice for high schoolers going through the IB program, or this form, which I'm using to learn about people's experiences in courses I am unfamiliar with so I can provide information on a wide variety of courses. I would really appreciate your help and thank you to those who choose to make a contribution! Feel free to be as honest as you want. Thank you once
  2. Just started making Quizlets form my German class and I thought someone else could benefit from them too! I'll add more as I make more Quizlet Folder
  3. Hi all, I'm taking German B SL because my school requires German as language B. My grammar is fine, but I find myself struggling due to lack of vocabulary. My teacher expects my understanding to be much better than it is, which is not helping much, and my textbook (Cambridge, second edition) does not have any vocabulary pages. Anyone here knows where I could find a good vocabulary list that is appropriate for SL? Thanks!!
  4. My exams are next year and I'm looking at Universities. I currently study: FRENCH B HL ENGLISH LANG AND LIT HL ECONOMICS HL NATURE OF SCIENCE SL MATHS STUDIES SL GERMAN SL I want to study French at university and am thinking about going to study in France. However, I am not sure if I would be taught in English as an International student or taught in French with other natives... I also want to study German alongside the french; does anyone know any good universities to study two languages in France???? This summer, I also would like to go v
  5. If you are a native German speaker (preferably one that is May or November 2018), could you please message me to indicate interest in being a penpal, before the Language B exams. Danke.
  6. I'm having my IOP's in German soon. We looked at the Books Jakob der Lügner, Homo Faber and Das Parfüm. We also watched the films. Generally speaking does any of you have any recommendation what to do if we have to analyze and compare two works? What specific aspect would you look at?
  7. hello guys.I'm really confused [among French, Spanish and German] to take one of these up as my foreign language. French is considered to be common these days, but I want to know which language will benefit me the most in airlines management courses.. so please can you help me out?
  8. I have to write a written task in German A Language and Literature. I decided to defend the bavarian dialect, based on an opinion piece offending this dialect. By sticking to the third or fourth question (How and why is a social group represented in a particular way? Or. Which social groups are marginalized, excluded or silenced within the text?). But since I am bavarian myself, I am unnerved by the possibility of my piece being an opinion piece, since it could sound like I'm defending my culture, which I will indirectly do. However, if I use concrete evidence to back up my claims, would it be
  9. Hi guys, These are some very useful tools for learning a language. They provide you with all sorts of help related to translation (obv ) proof reading, grammar, examples, and usages. - www.Wordreference.com as many of you may know is a dictionary for many languages and often gives you a few example sentences and basic facts (masc. feminine, noun, etc.) - www.linguee.com is a great website if you come across a word and want to find other forms it's used in. It basically finds real-life websites/articles/etc. that use a word in 2 languages (e.g. English and French) It also has
  10. Hi, all! At my school, we're having IB course selections and I would really appreciate some input. English Literature HL (I’m really good at English and really enjoy it!) Psychology HL (I’ve always been interested in psychology) Biology HL - Chemistry HL German ab Initio SL (Excited for this course) Math SL (I’ve always been horrible at math. I don’t want to do math studies.) If not, what can I change? Let me know what you think!
  11. hey everyone so, im panicking a little, because we had our interactive oral in my last german class, and now we're meant to write a reflective statement... but I have no idea how? Do i just write 'I thought this' and 'i realised that', is there meant to be any introduction or summary of the book or personal thoughts?? Im so confused! our teacher just said to write about what we learned about the culture and the time in our discussion, but we didn't really discuss that at all, more of the charakter traits etc. I mean i can write about the time as well its just that that will hav
  12. Hi guys, I currently have a 6 from German B SL. My Paper 2's are usually moving around 20 to 22 points out of 25, so basically a 6, however my huge weakness is the Paper 1, which I sometimes even get a 4 on. I have a question. I cannot seem to understand how I can prepare or improve my skills in the Paper 1's, do you guys have any special techniques or any tips? My MYP German teacher was completely useless and I feel I am catching up everything in these two years. I am graduating soon, so any feedback would be appreacited. By the way, I have a lot of vocabulary papers, concerning Grammar
  13. Hello, nice to meet you; I'm very new here, so please forgive me if I'm a little weird/rough around the edges lol. However, the main thing is that right now I'm quite conflicted. I'm a British student currenty in Year 11, going to an IB sixth form in 2017, and I have had a massive dilemma for the last few months. I want to do Computer Science at university, or at least a STEM subject to be broader, and my current choices are: SL Literature and Performance (as I like creativity, and Drama appeals to me more than normal English) HL Maths (daunting, I know, but for where I
  14. Hello, so school started in August and when I received my schedule I noticed I was put into IB Spanish instead or IB German. I just went along with it for the last months, however my IB dean never informed me of why this change was made. Our grades were just finalized and I practically in my eyes failed with a 78, I feel like this is unfair because I haven't been learning Spanish for the last two years like everyone else leading the to all receive As. I know this sort of sounds like know that my grades are good I'm complaining, but I have been concerned about this since the first day of school
  15. I'm on my second year of Ab initio German and I am struggling. My class last year was really relaxed and I have a different teacher this year that expects me as well as the German B students to be fluent in German. I get these crazy hard assignments when I can barely write a properly structured paragraph in German. I have extra textbooks and resources to help me but i'm nowhere near the level of the work my teacher gives. Any tips and advice please?
  16. Hi guys, I am writing my extended essay in german b. i have a topic and a structure ready but i do not know if it is going to be ok. A friend of my brother did an ee in german and got an E because of some strange reason. It was too much of the historical side and not the language/literature. In German B is the main thing they look for the language it is written in or the content? Could i for example write about a historical topic, but in german? i do not know if there is a difference between Language A and B EEs. My EE question translated is:" The Holocaust.Two survivors recall their stor
  17. Hello everyone I am thinking of writing my history IA on the aspects of WW1 that lead to the failure of the Weimar republic, but I feel like its not good enough, any ideas to refine it? Also any suggestions for good sources on this topic??
  18. Hey guys, So I started IB this year, my exams are in May 2017, and we got told about out Extended Essay yesterday in Assembly. We have a deadline to submit our Extended Essay forms at the start of February, so I really need to come up with an idea for it soon! I want to do my Extended Essay in Business, possibly on how I think technology is going to change certain industries over time, but I realise this is quite a broad topic and was wondering if you guys could help me narrow it down. P.S ~ I also was wondering if you think it would be insane if I did an Extended Essay in a foreign lang
  19. Hi! I'm choosing my subjects in 3 days and I just want to know what other IB students (with more experience) think about my plan. I want to take * Swedish LangLit A HL * English B HL * Business & Management HL * Math Studies / SL * Economics SL * Environmental Systems & Societies SL * German SL I don't know what I want to study after finishing IB but I'm sure it won't have anything to do with math/science. So I though that it might be a good idea to take Math Studies, and then add an extra language (German) to "compensate". The chancellor at my school told me it might be more
  20. Hello All! I hope exams are going well! Just wanted to open a topic about the German B exam (if anyone indeed takes this language!) How did everyone find the papers? I believe not all language B exams have been sat,so please refer to the exam discussion schedule to make sure your exam is allowed to be discussed!
  21. Hey does anyone have that paper?
  22. So, how did y'all find Paper 2? I believe it was TZ0 so we were all doing the same one. I chose #3 on Health. We did similar prompts to that in class, plus it's literally all you hear about in medical TV Then #6 (the argumentative portion) seemed to be a breeze! I was in separated classes in primary school so having some real-life experience probably helped me out for this. I feel like this one was definitely much easier than May '14's argument piece.

  24. I have looked everywhere and i can find most subject papers for may 2014 online somewhere! does anyone know where i could find German B HL paper 2? thanks
  25. Hey guys, yes... I know... another Pre-IB student asking for some advice on course selections So far I have chosen: German A Lit HL English A Lang&Lit SL Economics HL Biology HL Mathematics SL Geography SL To be quite frank, I absolutely loathe writing essays. It's not that I'm particularly bad at it, I just dislike writing in general. So here are my questions regarding this: -I've heard a fair amount of older students say that Eco HL is hell if you do not like writing essays. Is that true? -Secondly, I'm not quite sure which English course I want to pick yet: English Lit or Lang & Li
