    ...starting from very young learners, over more skillful ones, to the advanced level.

    I'm interested in the correct usage of the prepositions when I want to mention three things/stages/persons in a process.
    If I want to say that it was a long procedure, starting FROM the first thing, OVER the second thing which followed the first, TO the final one, is it correct to use "OVER" in this sense?

    exmple: "...starting from very young learners, over more skillful ones, to the advanced level."
