Bonjour les élèves! Bonjour les profs! Bonjour tout le monde! J'espère que vous avez tous passés de joyeuses fêtes malgré la pandémie.
I know it has been a long time since I last updated this website and provided new tools and resources for you all to learn (students) and share (instructors). This pandemic has really shifted my personal priorities and has thrown my life out of whack. I could not find the words that best capture what I have been feeling and living since our lives were flipped upside down. All semblance of life as we knew it has been replaced by our new 'normal' and fortunately for us, we humans are quite resilient creatures and can adapt and we have adapted. Many of us have lost loved ones or know of people who have lost loved ones to this virus but we must not let fear dictate how we live our lives. We must not let the fear of lock downs and restrictions influence our desire to learn a foreign language for those.
In 2022, the new IB French Survival Guide will make its debut. I am lucky to have a community of learners and instructions as supportive as all of you. I have been working with a talented web developer to build a new website that will be more user friendly with new resources and tools being uploaded weekly. I am manifesting that 2022 will be the year that IB French Survival Guide will become the community of students, teachers, and parents coming together for the common goal of learning and appreciating the French Language and Culture. You can expect to see the following coming in 2022:
May 2022 Examination schedule
Updates aside it is time for the not so fun stuff... examination schedules!
May 2022 Exam schedules have been released by the IBO since July 2021. Exams for French A, B, and ab initio are 20 weeks and 2 days away. We have approximately 4.5 months until students take exams for the 2022 exam session. Please share with me what you would like to see and outline areas of difficulty so that I may develop materials that target those problem areas.
