    My school is really small (compared to you guys), there are 12 people in my year and we all do IB, in fact we are sort of forced to do IB, we have no choice whatsoever on our subjects (you can get to do a different subject than the ones offered, but you need to get a special permission, study by yourself and get someone to sign saying he/she is your teacher and check over the internal assessment).

    King You sound like You are taking geography ----> "Student population: 500 students

    So from what You write most of the schools which are fairly small dont offer many courses. Even large ones aren't offering so much. It's fairly resonable because keeping a teacher somtimes just for one class is pretty expensive for the school.

    I was also wondering about ab inito. Why is that so few schools offer it? Honestly when i was starting IB i didn't even know about existing of ab inito. I would surly take it if i was offered such a course.

    I don't really know the enrollment at my school, probably 2000 +, about over 200 students, I'm guessing are doing IB throughout the 3 grades at my high school.....the 200+ students taking IB, includes full IB students and partial IB students so my school offers IB for almost everything: german, spanish, french, chinese(mandarin)=both the language and the language arts for the chinese language and french, math, english, history, biology, chemistry, physics, art, music, drama??, info pro[w/e that is :P]...probably forgetting some

    Good thinking! Actually, I hate geography !

    Regarding the ab intio thing, most students that do the IB in Asia, Africa and parts of Europe are already bilingual. So no one takes ab intio since they already know a native language and another language (usually English, French, and Spanish)

    Does that make sense?

    Cheers!

    Hehe Thank you! Yeah it was bit of a challenge to do Mathematics HL but it's OK so far...

    An ab initio language is a language that you learn from the beginning. It is assumed that you have no prior knowledge of the language. I believe you can do German Ab Initio AFAIK!
