IB French - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks

Bienvenue mes amis dans le monde magnifique des francophones !

French B SL[edit]

As of 2012 the IB Language B exam has changed in format and contents. This article is outdated.

Pour faciliter la communication entre les étudiants de ce niveau, et puisque ceci est la section Anglaise de « Wikibooks », la plupart de cette section est en Anglais.

To begin, French B is the second lowest difficulty of Group 2 Subjects. It is intended for students who have some background in French already, and wish to improve upon their reading and writing. There is no IB syllabus for French, so it really depends on your teacher to prepare you for your exams.

The Exams[edit]

Your French IB mark is determined primarily by external markers. The Oral Exam is internally marked, and externally moderated, whereas the Paper 1 & 2 are externally marked.

The Oral Exam[edit]

You are expected to speak for 3 to 5 minutes on a subject of your choice. Following this, there is a question period between you and your teacher for 2-3 minutes. During this question period, their job is to show your breadth and depth in the French language.

Note: You have to do your oral via cassette tape recording or digitally via CD recorder.

Tips for the Oral:

It would be most beneficial to your mark if you chose something relating in some way to French culture. Talking about Ford cars really has nothing to do with French culture, and would not impress markers. Some examples that are sure to "wow" the marker would be

French Regions (i.e. Provence, Champagne, Franche-Comté)

French-speaking Countries (i.e. Cameroon, Haiti, Tahiti, Belgium, etc...)

French Cuisine

French Art

Basically, anything distinctly French or Francophone will do
