Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
We strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The IB’s Language A: Language and Literature course is firmly based on the study of both language and literature, with a focus on how the study of texts produced in a language is central to how we see and understand the world in which we live. The texts studied on this course will be diverse and in the literature elements will also include works studied in translation. At the end of the two years, students are expected to be able to focus closely on the language of the texts they study and will be aware of the role of each text’s wider context in shaping its meaning. Formal analysis of literary works as well as an understanding of critical literacy are desired outcomes of this course.
