IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring FAQ

Befitting its international and multicultural scope, the International Baccalaureate Organization requires every student to learn a language that is not his or her native tongue as a key component of its diploma program. The Standard Level language ab initio course is designed for students who have no experience in the language they are studying, either inside or outside of a school setting.

While introductory-level in scope, the course is hardly basic for a high school-level foreign language class. In order to pass the course's IB examination, which is a requirement for the IB Diploma, students have to show more than basic proficiency in understanding and reading the language. They must also have mastered the language to the degree that they are able to write assessments and speak conversationally in it. Passing an IB Language ab initio class and exam takes more than just remembering conjugations and declensions. Reaching the required level of basic fluency can be extremely challenging through independent study. In order to achieve the results required to receive an IB Diploma, students might need additional academic assistance. Varsity Tutors can help students connect with IB Language ab initio SL tutors who are able to provide customized instruction for mastering the language they have chosen to learn.

Recent IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring Session Notes

Online IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring review by Wei
Today, we reviewed all the terms that we learned in the last few classes, including seasons, families, animals, numbers, and fruits. Then I introduced different colors in Chinese. I gave individual instruction this time, as it seems to be more effective. I've truly enjoyed working with my three wonderful students, and am amazed by their progress.

Online IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring review by Kathleen
The student reported that he continues to receive As in his Chinese class. Today he worked on his clothing unit for Chinese and we also reviewed the colors. We practiced having conversations about when certain types of clothing are worn, using a new grammatical structure for adverbial clauses that I taught him and he learned quickly. He practiced copying all his new vocabulary words and while he wrote a few sentences, the focus of today's session was on verbal communication in Chinese.

Online IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring review by Qian
He was eager to know some famous cars' names such as Lamborghini and Ferrari. I taught him many of the names of the cars that he has mini models of, such as ambulance, fire truck, regular truck, antique car, police car and public bus. He enjoyed the learning process very much. We also played a game to review the sentences we learnt from this Tuesday. He was able to master them.

Online IB Language ab initio SL Tutoring review by Mary Rebecca
We started a new lesson on the Chinese New Year or Spring festival. We reviewed the poem at the beginning of the lesson and learned the new words. We also introduced the topic of clothing. We then watched a video about Spring Festival and recorded in English and Chinese the main customs and traditions of this festival as explained in the video.

The student had a quiz the next day, so I helped him study for it. We went over a few grammar points and some vocabulary regarding the Spring Festival. Finally, I gave him a mock quiz with translations and questions to answer.
