Grading language

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from Language grading)

Grading language or language grading is a process whereby language is graded to a level appropriate for the audience, thus producing graded language.

Usually this means keeping the level of the language low so that students with low language proficiency can understand.

Speaking has to be done "on the fly" using simple grammar and vocabulary, rephrasing using other words, such as using true friends.

Written texts can be graded by rephrasing.
