ACTFL Language Level Description:
Speakers at this level are able to successfully handle a variety of uncomplicated communicative tasks in straightforward social situations. Conversation is generally limited to those predictable and concrete exchanges necessary for survival in the target culture; these include personal information covering self, family, home, and daily activities, interests and personal preferences. These speakers tend to function reactively by responding to direct questions or requests for information. They are able to express meaning by creating with the language and they typically produce sentence-length utterances but can combine some strings of sentences. At this level, speakers show the starting ability of self-correction.
Level 5: Mid Intermediate English is comprised of three courses. This course covers Units 1-3 and is designed to introduce intermediate-level classroom communication to students who can handle a variety of simple communicative tasks including response to direct questions, sentence-length speech, and nascent self-correction. Students develop skills at reacquainting themselves with someone, apologizing, making an excuse, expressing agreement and disagreement, and requesting information. Students also learn about American culture, customs, and sayings as they apply to each of the topics covered.
