Teksti: 

Language B is a course in language and culture. The course is designed for students who have previous studies in a foreign language and who wish to continue studying that language in the IB. 3-5 years of prior learning are required for for the study of a language B SL; the successful completion of this course is the equivalent of the Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET) level in English. In HL, the minimum recommended previous study is five years and a successful candidate will have achieved the equivalent of a Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE). The Language B course emphasizes communication: after successfully completing a language B course, a student will be able to express him or herself both in writing and orally in the target language, to understand a variety of texts, both written and spoken, and to engage in discussions in the target language.

At SYK, IB Language B is taught in the target language, and the language and culture is studied through a wide selection of current and relevant texts: newspaper articles, short stories, pictures, video, among many others. Whenever possible, we also visit museums and theatres in Helsinki region.

The courses cover a variety of themes: the core themes are media and communication, global issues and social relationships. Some optional themes are also studied. All of our students also read literature suitable to their level. At HL, the study of literature is also required in the syllabus.
