    on/at

    Hi

    Should it be: Students ON elementary level OR Student at elementary level.

    Thanks

    Re: on/at

    It's helpful to see the full sentence. In the US, we'd probably say "at" but "elementary level" requires an article.

    Can you re-write it as "elementary-level students"?

    {not a teacher}

    Would it work with students on/at elementary level?

    How's that?

    Re: on/at

    You need an article, as I said before.

    Students at the elementary level...

    Re: on/at

    You'll need to finish the sentence first. What's the verb?

    Re: on/at

    Thanks.

    Ex: Would it work with students (who are) at an elementary level?
