Happy Dimanche tout le monde! I hope that you have all had a wonderful and safe weekend! As you enter the new week, my hope is the work I have been putting into this site will better aid you in your studies.
That said, a brief course brief that outlines the course objectives, assessments, and curriculum for the French B SL and HL courses has now been published. A longer and more detailed version can be found under the course objectives section under language groups.
If you want to read this short but detailed brief, you can visit it by clicking HERE or you can click on 'IB Programme Overview' and navigate down to the heading that reads 'IB French B Course Brief' to review.
Today's French Word of the Day is none other than 'Flou' when can be used to describe something as either fuzzy or blurry.
It can also be used figuratively to describe one's state of mind as hazy. Please see below to see examples of this word used in sentences.
La photographie que Bastien a pris de moi devant Notre Dame était floue, par conséquent je lui ai demandé de reprendre ma photo.
The photograph that Bastien took of me in front of Notre Dame was blurry, as a result, I told him to retake my photo.
Exemple No. 2:
Tout est devenu flou
Un peu trop fou, pour moi
Tout est devenu flou
Et j'en ai peur, la suite on verra
Everything has become hazy
A little too crazy, for me
Everything has become hazy
And I am scared, the rest we'll see
Flou Lyrics by Angèle.

Hello Everyone! Welcome back! As you can see the website is going through some minor changes and as these changes are published I will be updating both twitter and instagram with posts notifying you to check the new content going live on IB French Survival Guide.
One of the most important aspects to cover when partaking in the IB Diploma Programme is reviewing and understanding the IB Learner profile. It provides the foundation under which you will become successful learners and develop skills that will follow you everywhere you go. That said go ahead and click the link below to visit our breakdown of the IB Learner profile. The IB Learner profile will become extremely important in all the content I produce for this site especially as it relates and goes hand in hand with the Language B prescribed topics and provides insight for language learning for students taking the ab initio course.

You can also visit the official IBO's website for their breakdown and explanation of the importance of the IB Learner Profile as it applies to the Primary, Middle Years, and Diploma Programmes.
