Novice (L 0): Prefunctional Proficiency listening



This is the level you will go through on your way to a truly useful proficiency in a language. At this level you will build up the ability to recognize vocabulary words in isolation or in simple sentences. You will probably need a lot of repetition. You will also have trouble understanding enough to cope with real communication situations in communities where the language is spoken.
