For Chinese I am "upper basic". I went to China with a friend who didn't speak Chinese back in March and I was able to handle easy conversations about daily stuff like weather, ordering food, getting train tickets, buying things at the markets, giving/getting directions etc.. I am going back to Beijing this december alone in order to dive more into the language. Early in the game I used a tutor for a month in order to get my tones right from the beginning and that was very helpful, I have absolutely no problem with tones now. I finished Fluenz Chinese last year and started with Yoyo Chinese and Domino chinese to continue my learning. I don't know what level will be the new Fluenz Chinese i will take a look when it's done.
Fluenz programs gave me the confidence and the strong foundations that I don't think I would ever have found in other programs, but it shouldn't be the only source of learning.
