Our online level test is a multiple-choice grammar test, which will give you an approximate indication of your ability level, based on the Common European and American Council Reference frameworks. The advantage of our online test is that you get instant feedback and a clear idea of your level. We may also request a writing sample, oral test and needs analysis when necessary.If you are not a complete beginner, we recommend you take a level test so we can plan the course outline and prepare materials accordingly. Take your online level test and read our level descriptions for guidance.
Our course levels are based on these internationally recognized systems, so you have a universally accepted reference for your studies. We recommend at least 100-200 hours of study to adequately cover each CEFR / ACTFL level. This represents a mix of guided study and self-study in the form of homework and other revision / practice.
This guide is reflected in our course structure, which is designed to give you a solid foundation in the language whilst providing you with enough time to cover each level sufficiently. The structure is of course flexible and adaptable, depending on your prior language skills, individual preferences and goals.
|CEFR*/ ACTFL** Reference||CEFR*
|B1||Intermediate||Intermediate High||Intermediate 1
|Upper Intermediate 1
Upper Intermediate 2
