Если Вы набрали менее 10 правильных ответов – Ваш уровень Intermediate. Повторяйте грамматику и учите новую лексику!
Если Вы набрали более 10 правильных ответов – Ваш уровень Upper-Intermediate. Начинайте путь к продвинутому владению английским языком.
Если Вы ответили правильно на 19-20 вопросов – возможно, Ваш уровень знаний выше, пройдите тест Upper-Intermediate или Advanced.
Шаг 5: Upper-Intermediate или Advanced?
На уровне Upper-Intermediate Вы усвоили большой пласт новой сложной лексики и идиом, начали изучать сочетаемость слов, повторили всю изученную ранее грамматику и даже узнали несколько новых конструкций. Но изучение на этом не заканчивается. Впереди еще два уровня знания английского языка.
Уровень Advanced предполагает fluency – беглое общение на любую тему, способность несколькими способами выражать одну и ту же мысль, готовность понимать все, что говорит собеседник. С такими знаниями можно смело ехать заграницу. На этом уровне ученики учатся использовать сложные грамматические конструкции, такие как инверсия и смешанные типы условных предложений. Подробно разбирается сочетаемость слов, изучаются фразовые глаголы и фиксированные словосочетания. Учиться на этом уровне очень интересно, так как именно здесь учеба превращается в удовольствие от знания. Уровень Advanced рассматривается как подготовка к международному экзамену CAE (Certificate in Advanced English).
