									                   Levels in Modern Foreign Languages


Writing

Level 1
I can copy single words. I can label pictures and complete sentences with
one word missing.

Level 2
I can copy phrases we have learned in class. I am trying to improve my
spelling.

Level 3
When we have studied a subject in class, I can write 2 or 3 sentences about
it. I can write about what I like and don’t like. Sometimes I can write a
sentence without looking things up. My spelling is getting better.

Level 4
I can write a short paragraph now, mostly from memory. I am remembering
the rules of the language and trying to get these right. I know how to look up
spellings.

Level 5
I can write a slightly longer piece of writing such as a letter. I am starting to
include different tenses to write about the past or the future. I am getting
better at finding difficult words in the dictionary.

Level 6
I am continuing to produce longer pieces of writing and am trying to include all
the three tenses we have learned: past, present and future. I am
understanding grammar more now and I am trying to get it right in my written
work.

Level 7
I can write about a variety of topics now including stories as well as real
events. The rules of the language are much easier now and I am trying to
produce more interesting sentences using all these rules. I am realising the
importance of doing work in rough first and checking everything through
before copying up neatly.

Level 8
I can do everything I could at Level 7 but I am including more of my own ideas
and opinions. I can write at length about things I have seen or heard. I am
becoming more accurate now and am using a dictionary more to make my
work more interesting and less to check spellings.

Reading

Level 1
I can understand single words, especially if there are pictures as clues.

I can understand short sentences. I can read out single words and short
phrases. I can use a glossary or a dictionary to find a meaning.

I can understand a short piece of French or a conversation which contains
French I have done in class. I can answer simple questions on this. I am
improving my use of the glossary and the dictionary.

Level 4
I can understand a short story or a text in French. I can answer simple
questions and understand more details. I can use my dictionary well but I
sometimes do without it and work out meanings for myself.

Level 5
I am beginning to understand different texts, some of which include events in
the past or the future. I can answer questions on these in some detail. I am
beginning to read real texts from France, such as leaflets and brochures. I
am getting quite good at reading out in class.

Level 6
I can read different types of text where the past, present and future are all
included. I can understand more details in the text. I am beginning to choose
books and read on my own.

Level 7
I can read a wide variety of texts, both fact and fiction. Even though the
sentences in these texts are more complex and contain words and phrases I
do not know, I am using my knowledge of the language and a dictionary to
help me.

I can read a wide variety of texts and enjoy reading in my own time. I am
enjoying reading texts which are on different topics from the ones we have
studied in class.

Listening

Level 1
I can understand the teacher’s instructions. I can understand short sentences
on the tape if the teacher repeats the tape.

Level 2
I can understand much more now when the teacher gives instructions. I still
need things repeated if we do simple listening exercises.

Level 3
I can understand short speeches on tape as long as we have learned the
words in class. If these are repeated, I can understand the most important
things but I still like the teacher to repeat the exercise.

Level 4
I can understand longer speeches now which include words and phrases we
have done in class. I am understanding more detail now and not just the main
points.

Level 5
I can understand when people speak at greater length now and I can cope
with people speaking in the past or the future as well as the present. I am
getting better at understanding details.

Level 6
I can understand conversations which include all three tenses we have
learned: the past, present and future. I am understanding details now, even
when the tape is not repeated so much.

Level 7
I am beginning to understand a wider variety of speeches and conversations
now, even when some of the language is not what we have learned in class. I
am beginning to listen to news items from the radio and television. I can cope
when the language is faster now.

Level 8
I am listening to language from all sorts of sources now, eg films, plays, news
items, etc. I need things repeating far less now and am understanding lots of
details.

Speaking

Level 1

I can give short spoken answers using short sentences I have learned in
class. I can say them better now but I still need to improve.

Level 3

partner. I can talk about what I like and don’t like. Sometimes I can change a
word or two in the conversation to make it more interesting.

Level 4
I am continuing to have short conversations but now I can change them more
using new words and the rules of the language we have learned in class. I
can pronounce things better now.

I can have short conversations but I am including more questions. I can now
talking using the past or future tense as well as the present.

Level 6
I am trying to include all three tenses we have learned in class: the past,
present and future. I am making a big effort to speak the language whenever
possible in class and to avoid English.

Level 7
I can now have conversations about my own interests and about things which
are happening in the world. I can find different ways of saying things to make
conversations more interesting. My language has fewer mistakes now and
my pronunciation is better.

Level 8
I can discuss my own ideas and experiences. I have a much wider
vocabulary and can use all sorts of language structures. I am more confident
in my pronunciation and intonation now. My spoken work feels much more
fluent.
