Our Levels

At Sol Schools International, our schools offer an 8 level system that ensures that students are placed in programs that are appropriate for their level of English proficiency. Please have a look at the Level Equivalency table below to get an idea of which level you might fit into. You can also take our online test for a free assessment. However, please note that this is just a guideline and all new students will be given an English test at the beginning of their studies to determine the exact level that is most appropriate for them.

You should also be aware that the courses we offer are available at different levels. Some courses are available for all levels while others are only available for lower or higher levels. Please view the Course Availability table below to see which courses are available for which levels.
