You never came to mind, why cover Murphy’s blue has the inscription “for students of secondary level, but the book itself contains material that can be used to pass the exam, even on the first level certificate from the anlgiyskogo language (FCE), which is studied in class for the advanced level? From here it turns out that starting from publishers and instructors, and ending with the teachers, all use different measuring levels of language. There is a common level scale of gradations of knowledge of foreign languages, which was established by the Association of linguists in Europe (ALTE). According to her, all students are divided into 6 levels: from the minimum basic to mastery (level of native speakers). By this scale, take exams, for example, in Cambridge. All publishers of dictionaries, collections of grammar, teaching aids and reference books from the UK also rely on this scale. If you take on the whole, then the scale used by all types publishers of textbooks for all except the largest group – the basic English courses. Oddly enough, the basic English language courses use their grading scale for their textbooks.
Here’s an example: Headway, True to Life and others, using a scale that divides the low level and covers only half way and learning from zero to perfect. The last base rate is approximately equal to the average Advanced level (level 3). This scale consists of: – Beginner – Elementary – Pre-Intermediate – Intermediate – Upper-Intermediate – Advanced This scale used by the majority of courses that use a communicative approach to language learning, in our case English.
