Real English is different. Students who have not lived in an English-speaking country should begin with Lesson 1! The people in the videos are spontaneous. Spontaneity is difficult for many students, just like real situations with strangers are difficult. The people seem to speak fast, but in reality, they are speaking at normal speed.

Real English is also different concerning "levels". Example: Lesson 43 is very easy because the people speak very clearly.

But they use a verb structure which is usually called "Intermediate". All the people you meet in Real English speak naturally, but some people speak more clearly, and more slowly than others.

On the other hand, "levels" are usually determined according to the relative difficulty of the grammar structure used in a lesson. When we say "Beginner", "Intermediate" and "Advanced" we are speaking about grammar difficulty, not the way the people speak. This is why you will find some difficult beginner lessons & easy intermediate lessons!
