    Simplified English ?

    The "simplified English" in these items is not simplistic English, nor is it artificial English.
    It is real English, with the difficulties ironed out.  Resources in this section vary in difficulty from low intermediate English to advanced intermediate (equivalent of up to Cambridge First certificate of English level, or CEFR * levels A2 to B2), and are designed for students with (the equivalent of) at least two to four years of high-school English behind them - not for beginners.
