ENGLISH B HL



Since IB English B is your acquisition language, the best way to get a 7  will be to listen and read English as frequently as you can.

There’s no better type of learning than practicality when it comes to languages.

Read English books out loud to yourself and make a note of what each word that you don’t understand means, find out the pronunciation of words you don’t know how to say, and try to use that word as much as you can in conversation.
 You should also watch Youtube videos in English. Watch the video first without subtitles and then with the subtitles so you know which word it was that you didn’t understand.
I would highly recommend doing this at least once a day. Make that your target and try to increase the number of times you watch a video and read a book every day. The more frequently you read and try to understand, the quicker you’ll improve.
Once your speaking and reading abilities improve, so will your writing but I would try to do a bit of writing. Perhaps what you could do is try to write 5 or 6 different sentences for each new word you learn or something like that.
The best you can do is to prepare your written and oral assignments the best way possible so you have a chance to make mistakes on your paper 1. 
Good luck on your exams

  • Conceptual Understandings:


Audience :Students understand that language should be appropriate for the person(s) with whom one is communicating.
Stimulus questions
- How can the perceived needs and interests, or previous knowledge, of the recipients of a text influence its production?
- How would the language used in a given text need to change if the same basic message needed to be communicated to a different audience?

Context: Students understand that language should be appropriate to the situation in which one is communicating.
Stimulus questions
- How does the situation or setting influence the production or reception of a text?
- How is the relationship between the producer and the recipient(s) of a text (or the relationship of interlocutors in a conversation) reflected in language use?

 Purpose: Students understand that language should be appropriate to achieve a desired intention, goal or result when communicating.
Stimulus questions
 When I read or listen to a text, what helps me to understand the intention of the person who produced the text?
- When I need to communicate for a specific reason, how do I plan my message and language use in order to achieve my goal?

Meaning: Students understand that language is used in a range of ways to communicate a message. Stimulus questions
- How are literal and figurative (non-literal) language used by producers of texts to create desired effects?
-What does the producer of a text do to make the message clear (or, on the contrary, to make it ambiguous) when there is no opportunity for the recipient(s) to reply to the text?

Variation: Students understand that differences exist within a given language, and that speakers of a given language are generally able to understand each other.
Stimulus questions
- How or why does a language change over time, across geographical boundaries or from one social or cultural group to another?
 - What does it mean to say that aspects of a text are “lost in translation” from one language to another?
