Grade / Proficiency level.

My reading materials are suitable for upper-intermediate or advanced ESL learners (B2/C1). They would also be suitable for grades 6-8. The following is the first paragraph for you to gauge the level.

"How much difference can one person make to the world? Well, if you’re Elon Musk, a significant amount! The South African-born entrepreneur has caused upheaval in a number of the world’s key industries. Listed as Time’s most influential person of 2021, he is on a one-man mission to make the world we live in a better place.

Initially making his fortune through internet start-ups such as Paypal, in the late 90’s, he first garnered international attention when he created the aerospace and space transport services company, SpaceX."
