A Beka ESL Level 1 (Beginning) is recommended for learners of any age who desire introductory and basic lessons in English vocabulary, pronunciation, and reading and listening comprehension. The teacher begins with individual English sounds, common words, and simple stories that build throughout the course. Extended vocabulary and listening skills (through storytelling) are added as the learner progresses.
A Beka ESL Level 2 (Intermediate) is recommended for those with some knowledge of English. The course is intended to help the learner improve his English pronunciation and accent. There is increased emphasis on vocabulary development and reading and listening comprehension. English grammar studies are added for learners who desire to know how the language works.
A Beka ESL Level 3 (Advanced: Literature and Grammar) is recommended for the English-language learner who knows English as a second language, but needs to hear English spoken by a first-language English speaker to increase fluency and vocabulary. A Beka ESL Level 3 (100 lessons) provides advanced comprehension exercises, literary studies, word studies, and grammar. It also provides explanation of common speaking and writing errors along with practice and reinforcement of corrections.
