Korean level standard :)
here’s a thing
I’ve made some mistakes to prepare for lessons before meeting people to teach.
There was a woman who said I speak like a “toddler”
so I focused too much on the word, toddler which sounded like a beginner of beginners.
but she was actually intermediate or at least beginner high.
I realised the standard that i have is not clear to check people’s korean level or is different from how others think.
Please have a look and tell me about what you think.
it will be really helpful to update this standard better :)
Thanks in advance.
: You can’t really say what you want to say
What You say is not exactly what you want to say
: You can put words or expressions you learned into sentences
But what you say is not still exactly what you want to say
You may be able to hear and answer for the sentence you learned
Intermediate ( LOW )
: you can express yourself basically.
Sometime the way you want,
Most of the time not the way you want.
In addition, you’d probably be able to understand a basic reply
If it is about simple topics you’ve learned
You might get the gist of a conversation even if you don’t understand whole sentences
Intermediate ( HIGH )
: you can express yourself, often maybe in the way they want
You can say pretty much most of what you want to say in the way that you want to say it
However, those have to be familiar topics
So you are not going to be able to talk about anything you want to say regarding nuclear fusion or political events
But within the stuff you’ve learned, you should be able to hold a conversation
: you can usually express yourself in the way that you want
you can also tackle topics that are unfamiliar to you
But you feel uncomfortable
You can really grab the context of what the speaker’s saying
Even if some people say you are fluent, you still feel stressed or not confident or personally frustrated that you’re not able to still say more
You sometimes change the way you speak into the simple way as you don’t feel confident a bit to say in the first way
: you can always express yourself in the way that you want
There is no problem at all to talk about basic topics
You can deal with the topics that are not related to you
But sometimes you feel less uncomfortable
Depending on the learning skill or various factors, people can have different level of fluency.
E.g. Advanced (HIGH) can have Fluency (LOW) level
If you think your level is on Intermediate (LOW) or over, it may be helpful to mention about your fluency.
