IB Learner Profile Trait of the Month: COMMUNICATORS

Big picture

Students who are COMMUNICATORS are able to think and communicate in more than one language. They can express their ideas by speaking, drawing, and writing. They can also communicate using mathematical language and symbols.


How can parents help at home to develop students who are COMMUNICATORS?


  • Encourage your students to stay in touch with relatives and friends who live in other countries by writing letters, using the phone, sending email messages, or Skyping.


  • When working on math homework, encourage your students to explain their answers to you orally, by drawing a picture, or by creating a digital presentation.


  • Work with your students to improve their listening skills. Being a good listener is an important part of communicating with others.


Ask your students thought-provoking questions and encourage them to discuss their responses with you. For example:


  • What would you do if you were being bullied at school?
  • Is there anything you cannot buy with money?
  • Should you get an allowance? Why or why not?
