Teaching English Abroad in Buenos Aires, Teaching English Levels

When teaching English, eight levels are commonly used to categorize language ability:

  1. Absolute/False Beginner
  2. Beginner
  3. High-Beginner
  4. Low-Intermediate
  5. Intermediate
  6. High-Intermediate
  7. Advanced
  8. High-Advanced

Beginner Students:

Beginners are often too shy to speak. As a result, teachers should be sure to build a rapport with the students so that they feel the confidence to begin speaking. Try to encourage students as much as possible, even if they make many mistakes. Always give constructive criticism with positive reinforcement. Lesson plans for beginners should be made interesting, diverse, and visual. Set a schedule that is flexible in case the student is quicker or slower than expected. Additionally, communication may be solely through body language if the teacher does not speak the student’s language. Try to have an English dictionary on hand in addition to planning “absolute beginner” activities. DO NOT treat adult beginners like children.

Intermediate Students:

Like beginner students, intermediate students may feel shy when speaking the target language. Be sure to work just as hard at building a rapport with such students. Knowing more of the language, intermediate students respond well to learning personal information about the teacher. Always commend intermediate students for a job well done. Lesson plans for intermediate students can be more difficult, but also more fun and creative. Intermediate learners are often more up to a challenge. They also respond well to visuals, literature, audio, and writing assignments. Get students involved as the topics will be more difficult. Give adult learners topics they can relate to. DO NOT treat adult intermediates like children.

Advanced Students:

Adult learners are the easiest to get to know as they are no longer shy about speaking. As a result, it is easier to build a rapport with such students. They have the ability to speak generally on most topics as they have a strong grasp of the language. There should be a lot of review using written and spoken language. Objective should be more flexible and one should take note that advanced students will move through material more quickly. Many advanced students are interested in learning about a specific field. As such, they can be taught specific courses in English. There is a freedom in planning lessons with advanced students that you would not find in intermediate or advanced lessons. Advanced learners are usually 17 and up.
