What is the different between HL and SL?Literature (HL only)Reading literature in the target language can be an enjoyable journey into theculture(s) studied. It will help students to broaden their vocabulary and to uselanguage in a more creative manner, developing ﬂuent reading skills, promotinginterpretative and inferential skills, and contributing to interculturalunderstanding. Students should understand the works in some depth (see“Assessment objectives” number 6), but literary criticism as such is not anobjective of the language B course at HL.Students are required to read two works of literature originally written in thetarget language. These works may be from any genre, or may both be of thesame genre. They do not need to be linked in any way (by author, theme,period).When selecting the works, teachers should keep in mind that students are in theprocess of acquiring an additional language. Works written with a highcomplexity of language may not be suitable material.
