Help with course levels.

The Beginners course implies that you have never learned the language.

Elementray is the next step up. It implies that you already have some knowledge of the language and roughly corresponds to a GCSE level at entry. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to have a GCSE.

Intermediate is the next step up after Elementary. It roughly corresponds to an AS-Level. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to have completed an AS-Level course.

These are just rough guidelines to try and help students make a decision.

We follow The COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK REFERENCE FOR LANGUAGES
