Spanish Levels

What is My standard?

All my group courses follow the levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (for a description of each level click here). My private courses follow the CEFR levels or the GCSE / A Levels, depending on my students’ needs.

If you are not sure about your standard of Spanish, please send me a message describing your experience with the Spanish language and I will advise you on which level to choose. For example, you can tell me about courses you have completed, countries you have visited, holidays you have had in Spain or Latin America, your level of interaction with Spanish speaking partners or friends etc.

This option is better than taking a level test, as level tests usually calculate your results based only on your knowledge of grammar. In my experience, some students don’t have a great command of grammar, but can understand the language and make themselves understood. This is important when choosing the right level too. So, by letting me know about your experience I will be able to determine which level you can join.
