An Exceptional Learning Experience
IBDP ENGLISH LANGUAGE B PREP. PROGAMME
Our English Language Acquisition Programme is designed to help students learn how to critically study and interpret written and spoken texts from a wide range of literary and non literary genres.
The programme gives students a thorough understanding of what is required for Papers 1 & 2 of the exam.
Strong focus is put on question types that my appear in paper 1.
Examples of these types are:
- Choosing which of a number of sentences are true according to the text
- Gap-filling exercises based on comprehension of the text
- Identifying clear inference from concepts (for example, “The text says that 60% of people think. What does this mean with regards to the remaining 40%?”)
- Identifying precise references of key phrases or structures (for example, “In line x, to whom does the word ‘they’ refer?”)
- Identifying related ideas that are in different parts of the text
- Identifying specific content items
- Identifying whether an explanation or definition is true or false, and finding the evidence for this in the text
For Paper 2, students learn a variety of text types that include, but are not limited to:
- Article, column
- Brochure, leaflet, flyer, pamphlet, advertisement
- Interview in any form
- News report
Areas looked at in detail include:
Communication and media
