The written assignment for IB Language B can be one of the most challenging tasks for a student. It is a formal written task which requires students to demonstrate their understanding of language and culture. For the written assignment, students are expected to use their language creatively in order to express their own opinions or ideas on an issue of relevance to them. The aim of the written assignment is for students to develop their own personal linguistic, cultural and textual awareness and to become increasingly autonomous.
The written assignment should be completed in the target language, with the exception of the reflection (which is in English). The written assignment should include a clear introduction, body section, conclusion and reflection. The written assignment should also contain appropriate examples and arguments. It should be well-structured and developed with appropriate grammar, syntax and spelling. The length of the writing should be between 800 to 1000 words.
When writing their assignment, students should pay close attention to their own personal language use. They should choose vocabulary and structures which are appropriate for the situation and audience. It is important that they use a wide range of language in order to create an interesting and convincing text.
The written assignment should also be supported by authentic cultural references. This could be texts such as newspaper articles, books or films which are related to the topic. In doing this, students can demonstrate an understanding of the cultural context of their writing and make it more interesting for the reader.
Finally, it is important for students to dedicate enough time to the written assignment. They should plan their writing and revise it in order to ensure that it is accurate and well-structured. This will help students to produce a powerful and effective piece of writing which will help them to achieve their best possible grades.
