    what is spanich ab? i only know of HL and SL. SL for me, the native speakers will not even take the Hl test,so i figure it is for good reason.
    its abinitio. it for the IBers who don't have enuff foreign language "experience" in our lives. like umm 1 year of spanish isnt enough to take SL or HL so AB is another form of IB. i think it's more directed towards grammar

    basically abinitio is when you start a language from scratch. it's designed for students who are beginner learners or have not had a previous qualification in the language. so basically say, for example, you can't have done GCSE french and do abinitio but if you FAILED you GCSE french you can do it at abinitio. I know someone who did this.

    well im doing my extended essay on english, and ive decided to compare the importance of nature in life with two texts. choosing english for the extended essay means alot of reading, because you need alot of textual references. the first thing i would say you should do is decide on a broad topic in my case i chose nature. then you need to do some research and decide on the text (s) you want to study. with writing an english EE you have two choices; 1. a study of one text originally written in english 2. a comparsison of one text originally written in english and another originally written in another language. I chose the latter. once you have your topic, determine a question that interests you. from then its just alot of research into other fictional and non-fictional texts. It is really important that you plan your EE, otherwise it will be shabby, i finish my IB in December 07, and so im well into writing my EE. A site that i found really helpful while planning my EE is http://www.rism.ac.th/Hs/IB/ee%20guidelines.pdf

    I cant wait till i finish in november i hope to get:
    Enlgish HL 6
    Maths SL 6
    Biology HL 7
    Psychology HL 7
    Chemistry SL 5
    French SL 7
    Total 38

    Actually not necessarily. You are definitely not restricted to just those 2 choices. You can write your English A1 EE on practically anything, as long as your essay is in the english language and it's a literary analysis essay. the text you decide to talk about could have been written originally in whatever language you want, but most often there should be a translated version into english. if you choose to compare 2 texts, you don't have to have either of the texts originally english.

    english might be my first language, but i have never been able to spell anything correctly. the funny thing is i have almost perfect spelling in spanish. if i could talk in spanish all day i would. i like it so much better.

    huge difference. Lang A1 is literature, Lang B is learning the language as a second language.

    Comparative analysis of 2 novels and focusing on a certain specific common theme? Most people tend to do that.

    Doing it on aspects of language would be much more interesting in my opinion but I haven't really heard of people doing those.

    usually for A1 they'd want you to focus on literature analysis than language
