Below is a quick assessment guide to the levels on ESL TeenStuff.

 

Beginner (A0-A1)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our A0-A1 Beginner materials.

Can your learners;

  • Comment very minimally on concrete issues using very basic English, and with a lot of help from you or another sympathetic listener?
  • Understand everyday vocabulary and use this to exchange concrete information on very familiar or routine matters usually related to the immediate environment?
  • Introduce themselves, say some very basic things about themselves, and ask rudimentary questions to elicit similar information from others?
  • Accomplish minimally demanding tasks using English?

Elementary (A1-A2)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our A1-A2 Elementary materials.

Can your learners;

  • Talk about a limited range of familiar topics using basic phrases and very simple sentences with substantial help from a sympathetic listener?
  • Interact with others so that very basic conversational exchanges take place, provided the listener is prepared to assist in the exchange of meaning considerably and the topic is a familiar one?
  • Understand everyday vocabulary and use this to exchange concrete information on their background and things in their immediate environment with some degree of accuracy?
  • Produce simple sentences and phrases and use basic connecting devices (e.g. and, but) to say things about personal aspects of their lives.
  • Ask basic, and relatively well-formed, questions to elicit basic information from others and to achieve positive outcomes in everyday tasks?

Pre-Intermediate (A2-B1)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our A2.1-B2 Pre-intermediate level materials.

Can your learners;

  • Produce simple connected text on familiar topics, or those of personal relevance, with some help and interact relatively comfortably with others when conversation revolves around matters familiar to them?
  • Understand key meanings in spoken and written text on areas of immediate relevance to their personal lives or centred on their interests?
  • Extract and communicate key points of information and essential ideas from speech and writing, so long as these are within a limited but growing range of contexts?
  • Accomplish tasks which require understanding of frequently used vocabulary and basic sentence constructions for their outcomes to be realised?

Intermediate (B1-B2)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our B1-B2 Intermediate level materials.

Can your learners;

  • Speak and write effectively, if not always accurately, on a widening range of familiar topics through both spoken and written channels?
  • Understand what is said, or written about, on more abstract topics and comment these, as well as say, or write about, how they feel about these topics with a good degree of accuracy?
  • Describe their own experiences in some detail, express and assess opinions and viewpoints, describe the arguments of others, and outline plans briefly but relatively effectively?
  • Interact spontaneously and naturally on familiar topics, with a relatively minimal amount of hesitation, and hold a longer speaking turn on these with some preparation time?
  • Accomplish some more complex real world tasks which require increasingly versatile use of their language resources?

Upper-Intermediate (B2-C1)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our B2-C1 Upper-intermediate level materials. Can your learners;

  • Speak and write quite flexibly, and in some detail, on a broad range of familiar and some more abstract topics? Errors, where these exist, do not unduly impede relatively precise expression of ideas and information.
  • Understand implicit meaning in text, recognise the speaker-writer’s stance, comment at some length on ideas expressed by others, and say how they feel about these during extended speaking turns?
  • Accurately outline, explain and argue for and against viewpoints in academic and professional contexts showing precise use of vocabulary and grammar, as well as effective control of organisational features of both written and spoken text?
  • Accomplish a range of complex real world tasks which require versatile use of language resources?

Advanced (C1-C2)

If your students cannot do these things consistently well, they might benefit from a course based on our C1-C2 Advanced level materials.

Can your learners;

  • Accurately summarise content from a wide range of non-specialist spoken and written sources, and reconstruct arguments in a coherent way without referring to original texts?
  • Understand and respond to subtle variations in style and meaning in text from a wide range of contexts, and comment with ease, and at some length, on the ideas expressed by others in demanding contexts?
  • Express their own ideas on complex ideas with little or no hesitation, using appropriate vocabulary and grammar flexibly and with virtually no errors evident?
  • Use English to express complex argumentation and report critically on the ideas of others, evaluating viewpoints in academic and professional contexts concisely and accurately?
  • Accomplish demanding and prolonged real world tasks which require versatile use of language resources in complex situations?
