Classwall Bookroom Levels

Kuaderno books are graded in 26 levels for children aged 5 to 12. The readings are an assortment of stories for children, classic fairy tales and fables and cultural content written and recorded by expert English teachers. The readings contain expressions and vocabulary that reinforce the English that children learn at school. The readings also help children prepare for official Cambridge exams (Young Learners, KET and PET) and Trinity exams (levels 1 to 6). Levels A1 to B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) – an internationally recognized standard for determining linguistic ability – are covered.
