Building Language Capacity
The following series of slides provides an
opportunity for teachers to support each
other in small groups with reference to
the glossary if required to build a shared
understanding about some of the
common grammar terms used in the
Levels. This will enable teachers to better
identify these in student texts.

Croc Food!
Colonel Blimp was a keen hunter. He set off to Africa to shoot a lion. This was
many years ago so people were allowed to shoot lions. One day he left his hotel
room alone to find the lion.
As he approached the entrance of the jungle he heard a groan, he didn’t worry
about it. He set off into the dark, gloomy jungle. He heard another groan in the
trees and saw a bit of mane through the trees. He got scared by a tucan and he
jumped into a creek. He loaded his gun and gently sloshed through the water. He
stepped onto a rock, at least he thought it was a rock. It moved and a large head
popped out, Blimp tried to move but the crocodile swallowed him whole.
He felt some water around him, the croc suddenly burped and the man flew into
the lions mouth. He felt as if knives were cutting into him as the lions teeth dug
into him. He felt a “woosh” around him and then he died.

Language progression across the Levels
• If particular indicators and examples do not provide
sufficient guidance to assign a Level, what could
you do?
• All teachers begin to build their language capacity
from different starting points, so what could you do if
as yet you do not fully understand all the language
in the Levels?
