Year 1 and 2 (IB) Primer: Introduction to Language Arts
All International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes value language as central to the development of critical thinking, which is deemed essential for cultivating intercultural understanding and responsible membership in local, national and global communities.
Language is integral to exploring and sustaining personal development and cultural identity, and provides an intellectual framework that supports the construction of conceptual understanding.
In Language Arts, students will interact with a range of texts, often venturing into the moral, social, economic, political, cultural and environmental domains. They will learn from this subject to grow in their abilities to form opinions, make decisions, and reason ethically—all key attributes of an IB learner.
Our introductory workshop will familiarise students with the aspects of the Language Arts course and support their understanding of the demands of assessment within the IB Programme.

Year 5 (IB) Primer: Introduction to Language and Literature
The Language and Literature course in the IB Diploma Programme introduces the student to a critical study and interpretation of written and spoken texts from a wide range of literary forms and non-literary text-types. Specifically, it encompasses:
- the creativity of writers and readers, and the nature of their interaction with their respective contexts and with literary tradition
- the ways in which language can give rise to the meaning and/or effect, and
- the performative and transformative potential of literary creation and response.
Students need to be able to relate to their texts and do close literary analysis – a skill that must be developed and practised – of a range of literary texts in a number of literary forms and from different times and places, as well as understand the relationships between texts, cultural contexts, and local and global issues.
Our introductory workshop will acquaint students with these advanced components beyond their Language Arts course in the MYP (Years 1-4) and support their understanding of the demands of assessment at the Diploma Programme level.
