Are you an ex-VIPkid teacher looking for interactive curriculum slides for your independent online ESL teaching? Maybe you taught with PalFish before and need to quickly match your students up with the Abridge Academy curriculum, or want to combine Abridge Academy with the popular Cambridge textbook series?
Today, we will give an overview of the Abridge Academy curriculum structure and CEFR levels, matching these with popular ESL platforms. This should assist you in placing any students moving from a platform to your independent classes at the appropriate level!
|Level 1||Pre-A1||Level 1||PF1||Levels 0-2||Starters|
|Level 2||A1||Level 2||PF2-3||Levels 3-4||Movers|
|Level 3||A1||Level 3||PF4||Levels 5-6||Movers|
|Level 4||A2||Level 4||PF5||Levels 7-8||Flyers|
|Level 5||A2||Level 5||PF6||Levels 9-10||Flyers|
See the full spreadsheet below or open here to compare detailed level descriptors for the curriculum.
One of the biggest challenges with any new student is deciding which level to place them at. There are many different CEFR level placement tests available online, however I would particularly recommend these tests by Cambridge as they are free and quick to do. You could either send these to your students to do before your trial class, or do it in the class itself.
