Help with course levels:

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