    Recently, i've been looking into the IB. I really want to do italian ab initio, however you can only do ab initio at standard which, if im understanding correctly, would give me just 2 hours a week compared to the six I would get at a level. What are you're experiences with taking an ab initio language at IB? Thanks

    (also im worried it may jeopardise my overall score if i dont get as much time to learn italian and therefore dont do as well on it. Also, although i'm currently getting A's (year 10) in science and maths, im not overly keen on those subjects. thoughts?)

    Hiya! I moved this into the IB forum for you - you're more likely to get a reply here

    You could also have a look around the forum to see if anyone else has been talking about doing Italian on the IB

    Hiya, im not sure if you got a response on another thread but I've just finished IB and i did Spanish ab initio. I really enjoyed it, i had 3 hours a week and found that that was enough because it's only beginner level. Don't expect to come out fluent but its a great starting point. It won't jepodise your grade in the subject because everyone else has the same amount of time as you so you'll all be on the same level and will be marked accordingly, it's all to do with how much individual effort you're willing to put in.
    Hope this helps and if you have any more IB questions id be happy to help
