What do these belt rankings mean, and how do I know my level. Look at this PDF File and see exactly what each belt level means and what we will work on in our classes. You will also be able to see what is necessary to advance to the next level.
These rankings focus more on function than form. That is to say that this system measures how you can USE YOUR LANGUAGE in practical situations. These are not intended to help you with passing a specific exam or have you do tricky exercises or tasks, but they are to help you use your target language in the real world.
Each belt level has targeted language to learn and specific requirements to advance. Check it out and see if you have an idea of your specific level.
