There is a wealth of information on the internet that you could use to help your English studies – some of it useful, some of it not. I have created this website to make it easier for you to access additional materials to help you develop your knowledge, skills and understandings in English class.
If you find other useful and/or interesting resources, please let me know.

Grade 12 IB English Lang/Lit
Here’s an overview of the full two-year course.
The course will follow a very similar format to last year. The first semester will be primarily focusing on Language Studies. You can read more about that on the Language and Culture page. The latter part of the first semester and most of the second semester will be focusing on Literature: Texts and Contexts. The study of the graphic novel Persepolis will begin in November and The Great Gatsby will be studied in the second semester, after the mid-year exams.
