    Is it Beginner's level or Beginner level ?

    Hi teachers,

    I am writing an email to my best friend, Jan, who lives in Australia.
    These are some of the things that I am going to tell her in the email:
    ...
    There will be no school for a few days on 18th this month due to federal holiday.
    I am thinking of doing some self-paced learning at beginner's level, such as Japanese, painting, horse riding.
    ...

    But I am not sure if I should say Beginner's level or Beginner level.
    Compare: Intermediate level, Advanced level
    Are there any other grammatical mistakes in my email, teachers?

    Thank you.

    Kitty.

    Hi,
    In my opinion, Beginner's level is fine.

    Re: Is it Beginner's level or Beginner level ?

    Beginner level, or beginners' level, are better than beginner's level.

    Introductory level is also great.

    However, you can't have [clause] due to [substantive], it has to be [substantive] due to [substantive].
