The suggested levels refer to those used in the Centre for Independent Language Learning at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and approximately relate to a student's score in the Form 7 Use of English exam.

If you didn't take this exam, you can ask a CILL tutor for help, or start at Early Intermediate ( EI ) level. Then, if EI level is too difficult, try Elementary level. If EI level is too easy, try Intermediate level.
