Can my Extended Essay topic (which is in English B) have the same topic as my World Literature Essay (which is in Arabic A1)?

Please let me know as soon as possible!

Of course an extended essay can be written in English B! Here's my topic: Comparison between two female characters; Lyuba Ranevsky and Jane Eyre in each of The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

That's what I'm looking into at the moment. I shall read the guide, but please let me know if you come across any information that may be useful.

They would do a lot more than that. Double-dipping between any subjects, no matter what language or group, is a failing condition. At my school they even classify it as plagiarism...
Aren't you allowed to have similar experimental writeups in sciences though? One of mine is a biochemistry topic, enzymes, so perfect for both biology and chemistry.

I had a feeling that this would be considered plagiarism. Well, can I write my extended essay (which is, again, in English B) about two stories (actually, plays) that I'm already taking at my Arabic A1 course, but the topic isn't the same as the one for my World Literature Essay?

Well firstly the original texts SHOULD be written in english. Also it should be about english culture and how the works reveal the culture of english society in a period of time. If your essay didnt include that (or just write it in terms of literature) then its no good doing it.

What!

Do you mean that I can investigate English-written stories/plays in my extended essay only? The plays that I'm investigating in are Norwegian (The Wild Duck) and Russian (The Cherry Orchard). Of course, they're translated into English, but the original language, is, as mentioned, in Norwegian and Russian.
