Intermediate - B1 / B2

Once you have a certain base knowledge in your target language, you are able to move onto more advanced stories. However, you will find you might still lack vocabulary or the listening skills to really understand what’s going on. That’s why it can be beneficial to take stories you already know, either because you’ve read the book before or because you’ve seen the movie. This way you always know what’s going on, and you can fill in the gaps when you come across a word you haven’t heard before.

Advanced - C1 / C2

Once you’ve reached the advanced language levels, you are ready to take your knowledge to the next step. Try finding something written in your target language, and emerge yourself in the literature. This way you can go beyond just understanding the language, and start getting familiar with the whole culture around it.
