ACTFL Language Level Description:
Speakers at this level are able to successfully manage a number of uncomplicated communicative tasks in straightforward social situations. Conversation is restricted to a few of the predictable topics necessary for survival in the target language culture, such as basic personal information, basic objects and a limited number of activities, preferences, and immediate needs. These speakers can respond to simple, direct questions or requests for information; they are able to ask only a very few formulaic questions when asked to do so and produce mostly short, incomplete sentences. Speakers at this level are able to handle a variety of tasks pertaining to the Intermediate level, but are unable to sustain performance at that level.
Level 3: High Beginner English is comprised of three courses. This course covers Units 9-10 and is designed to introduce basic classroom communication to students who are able to process simple communicative tasks on familiar topics only. Students improve functional language by extending and declining a casual invitation as well as by identifying foods and creating a recipe from their country of origin. Students also gain exposure to American culture, customs, and sayings as they relate to each of the topics covered.
