The Foundation level is the first step in successful professional development with Metropolis. The Foundation level is the recommended starting point in legal English training for international lawyers. This level may be the correct starting point for those who wish to begin training in professional legal English while continuing to develop English skills in general.
Level of general English
The level of English needed for this course is Upper-Intermediate level. The priority at this stage is to make sure that a genuinely strong foundation of legal English is in place in order to allow learners to progress successfully to the next level. This strong foundation includes consolidating basic grammar before moving on to more complicated language structures. The exam is based on absolute accuracy in written English, not fluency. This means that when learners answer questions we expect their use of English to be very good and they will lose points for imperfect grammar as well as for vocabulary mistakes.
