If you're trying to decide between a few post-beginner levels, the Get Set for ... links below take you to pages to help you work it out in a different way.
We've listed some simple guidelines about what's good to already have under your belt.
So they're based on seeing what has gone before a certain course or level.
You might notice that the descriptions of the first few levels share a few points, eg, present tense, regular verb conjugations.
There's a good reason why! Some may have learnt what they know through their travels, and so have a well-developed vocabulary (or fluency or confidence), that's more in line with, say, Upper Elementary 1. But without the fundamental knowledge of the present tense, regular verb conjugations, it will be difficult to join an Upper Elementary course or proceed to higher levels.
We're not making that up! Spanish takes its verbs seriously, and all we need to do is get them happening to make the ride easier.
