I have added the following resource today: “Placing Students in the Correct Language Class.”
As we can get students with a wide range of language abilities, placing them in the correct class can be a challenge. It is not as simple as basing their language class on their nationality, as this does not always equate to their exposure to it and ability of learning it in an academic context.
The new resource gives a summary of how to best place students, taken from advice directly from the IB. It also gives ideas on what to do when a student does not have the language profile that easily places them into Language A or B.
