IB Group 1: First Language


The study of our first language is paramount to the success of our education. Irrespective of our preferred discipline, be it science, maths, sport or otherwise, we cannot underestimate the importance of our principal form of communication. It is through our first language that we will express our ideas and convince others of our beliefs.

Through group 1 subjects, learners develop an appreciation of language and literature, skills in literary criticism, an understanding of the formal, stylistic and aesthetic qualities of texts, as well as strong powers of oral and written expression. Students grow to appreciate a language’s complexity, wealth and subtleties in a variety of contexts.

Group 1 subjects: English Literature, German Language and Literature, Russian Literature, Self-taught First Language.
