Tips on IB Language B IA

Here are some tips on acing your IA which can be very stressful if you don’t speak the language regularly.

In IB Language B, you have probably been able to practice reading and writing almost every class. But this time, the internal assessment wants you to speak, which you may have not been able to practice as often. So here are some tips on acing your IA, which can be very stressful if you don’t speak the language regularly.

The first and most important thing is to be comfortable speaking the language. This rarely happens overnight, so you will probably need to practice speaking frequently. This can be difficult if you don’t live in the country where the language is spoken. If this is the case, make the most out of your class time. Practice talking with your teacher and other students because after all, they are the best people to practice with – you will be assessed speaking with them, not anyone else.

If you are lucky enough to find other people speaking the language, you can use that opportunity to your advantage as well. Meet them as often as possible and try to speak your Language B rather than an easier one you speak everyday. If that is not the case, but you feel like practice outside of class is needed, try finding movies or TV shows in the language. Use your free time you would have spent watching movies and TV shows anyway. If you don’t enjoy watching stuff, you can listen to songs instead. Find something you enjoy doing, so you will find yourself doing it regularly.

Most importantly, try to relax and think of the assessment as simply having regular conversations, just in another language – which can be very difficult and stressful, but not that different from what we do everyday anyway.
