Level 4 are starting to understand how the major verb tenses work, are adding to their growing vocabulary, and are ready to gain confidence when speaking and using several different verb tenses.
The course covers verbs in all tenses (particularly both past tenses), active and passive voice, and indicative, imperative, and subjunctive mood; all cases of nouns, pronouns, and articles (nominative, accusative, dative, and genitive); adjective endings and comparative and superlative forms; and word order in statements, questions, and dependent clauses. This course will emphasize using all four skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) to practice those grammar elements and expand vocabulary in context, primarily through conversational activities in class and reading more complex texts, as well as completing a range of task-based activities (e.g., planning travel, finding an apartment, etc.).
If you are not an absolute beginner, determining what level you are can be really difficult. However, our professors can usually gauge it very quickly after speaking on the phone with you – even if just for a minute or two.
For students who think they may be Level 2 or higher, choose the level that sounds most appropriate for you based on these descriptions and go ahead and sign up for a class. We do a informal placement phone call with all new incoming Level 2 and above students for both you and us to be sure that the level you choose isn’t either too advanced or not advanced enough. If you need to be placed into a different level, we can discuss that when we call for the placement test. We prefer to do this placement call after you sign up online because about 60-70% of students do place themselves accurately.
