What is the C-level Interface and how does it work?
The C-level interface is Chatterbug's platform for advanced C1 learners. It's different from the A and B-level interface in several ways. First we've given it a brand new look, with side bar on the left from which you can access your Live Lessons, flashcards and various account settings.
1. My Course
In this level, you are the sole judge of what you'll study. Chatterbug prepared a number of self contained units for you to choose from and add to your study deck via the My Course section. You can choose to add one unit at a time or study several at the same time, but to advance towards your C1 certificate, you will need to complete all 10 units in the level, meaning you will be required to do all Self-study activities and Live Lessons in each unit.
The My Course section also allows you to review content from previous levels thanks to a drop-down menu that takes you back to the A and B levels. However, once you've reached the C-level you can no longer take lessons at the A and B levels.
2. Live Lessons
The C-level scheduling page allows you to book lessons at both at random and with specific tutors of your choice. If you choose any of the offered slots on the calendar, you will be matched with a tutor who's available at that time.
If you'd rather request a lesson with a favorite tutor*, you can do so by filtering your lessons by specific tutors and booking the slots that suit your schedule. For example, if you want to only see slots when tutors Scarlett and Esmeralda are available, check the boxes next to their names to see only their slots.

The Achievements section offers an overview of your progress and of everything you have learned so far. Here you will find records of your Live Lessons if you've chosen to have them recorded, a list of all the grammar concepts you studied, and an overview of recently completed readings, media and writing activities.
You have two options to brush up on vocabulary in this level. First, you can let Chatterbug show you a random set of vocabulary via Flashcards on your left hand side bar. Here, your study cards are picked randomly from several units and you might even see some A and B-level cards that were not yet mastered in previous levels.
The second option is to go straight to a specific unit and study only the vocabulary that's relevant for this subject. To access your unit-specific study deck, head to your Unit 👉🏽 Vocabulary 👉🏽 Study Now.
5. Account settings
Your account settings, payment information, as well as language picker can be found at the bottom of the side bar. To access the former two, simply hover over your username, and to add a new language or switch to a different course, hover over the language flag just above your username.
Happy advanced learning! 🎓
