How to Change Levels in Catalyst

How do I move to the next level when I finish my current level or it’s too easy?

When you finish your current level or it turns out to be too easy, you’ll need to contact your organization’s Rosetta Stone administrator to be moved to the next level of content. See specific instructions below based on your current level.

Foundations Levels

A1 learners: No action needed, as A1 learners have access to our full Foundations program, which includes A2 content. If you finish all the units in Foundations, see the instructions below for A2 learners.

A2 learners: If you are learning a language that has intermediate/advanced level content available, contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to B1 in Fluency Builder. If you are learning a language that only has beginner level content available, you have finished all the content available for your language. Congrats!

Fluency Builder Levels

B1 learners: Contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to B2.

B2 learners: Contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to C1.

C1 learners: Congratulations! You’ve finished all the content available for your language. You can contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to start learning another language (if your organization allows this) or ask to be moved to previous levels of your current language that you’d like to review.

 
 


What should I do if I’m placed in a level that is too difficult?

If you are placed in a level that is too difficult either by the placement test or your Rosetta Stone administrator, you need to contact your administrator to be moved to a lower level. See specific instructions below based on your current level.

Foundations Levels

A1 learners: Go back to the basics and use our alphabet feature to learn the letters and sounds of your new language. 

A2 learners: Try a lower unit, as you also have access to A1 content.

Fluency Builder Levels

B1 learners: Contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to A2.

B2 learners: Contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to B1.

C1 learners: Contact your Rosetta Stone administrator and ask to be moved to B2.

 

Please note: it's perfectly normal to place higher in a language test and then feel the assigned content is harder than expected. There are several skills being measured in the test, so if you are strong in a few of them, it could boost your score. Not all skills are developed at the same pace, so going back a level or two would fill in those gaps. 


If you’re placed in B1 or above and feel the content is too difficult, moving down to Foundations will provide easier and more linear content that will bring more confidence. You can play around with the different units until you find a comfortable spot to start. If you have previous experience in the language but you’re not sure where to start, check out our advice here.
