Explore the Key Changes in IBDP FRENCH?

As the new Language B and ab initio syllabus have come into effect, I would like you to explore the key changes:

  • Instead of focusing on core topics and options, the new course is based on 5 general themes: Experiences, Identities, Human ingenuity, Sharing the planet, and Social organization which will help students to develop intercultural awareness and international-mindedness by focusing on the target culture while developing their linguistic competence in the target language.
  • Listening comprehension will be tested as paper 2; Students at both Higher and Standard level will listen to 3 spoken texts and be required to answer listening comprehension questions.
  • The Higher Level internal assessment will be based on a literary extract of approximately 300 words, taken from one of the two literary works studied in class. Students are required to focus their presentation on the content of the extract itself, discussing the event(s) in the extract, and focusing on the main idea(s) or message(s).
  • Interactive oral activities will no longer be a part of the internal assessment.
  • The written assignment has been discontinued at all levels.

Students’ Speak…

Bonjour !


“Bonjour! As diverse as the language is, every aspect matters to the core. I believe the fluency lies in the pronunciation. I choose to learn from an expert. I choose to learn from M. Anuj

Merci beaucoup !

Anuj sir is very resourceful and innovative in his teaching methods, and he has an extensive collection of material and exercises to ease the learning process. We are flying to Paris for specialist training, and learning French from Anuj sir has made us very confident that we would be able to converse in French when we travel. Though we will be traveling to France before the next round of DELF exams, Anuj sir has coached us so well that we are pretty sure we would have been able to clear both A1 and A2 quite comfortably. All this in a short span of two months. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide !
