Audio Transcript: Description of Level C
What does a performance that falls within the range of a level C actually mean?
Well, candidates must demonstrate an ability to:
- Understand complex speech dealing with work-related topics, spoken in standard dialect and delivered at normal speed;
- Give clear, detailed descriptions of complex topics and summarize a discussion;
- Express and sustain opinions and respond to complex and hypothetical questions.
The level C candidate has:
- A fairly natural and even delivery. There are occasional hesitations, but most of these are for ideas;
- The candidate has knowledge of a broad range of vocabulary and structures when talking about complex and abstract topics, with a relatively high degree of control. The candidate makes errors, but these rarely lead to misunderstanding; and
- Clear pronunciation, even if an accent from another language is noticeable. Occasional mispronunciations occur, but these rarely interfere with communication.
Now listen to audio excerpts of interviews of level C candidates.
