This paper presents an effort to provide a level-appropriate study corpus for Lithuanian language learners. The collected corpus includes levelled texts from study books and unlevelled texts from other sources. The main goal is to assign the level-appropriate labels (A1, A2, B1, B2) to texts from other sources. For automatic classification we use preselected surface features, based on text readability research, and shallow linguistic features. First, we train the model with levelled texts from study books; second, we apply the learned model to classifying other texts. The best classification results are achieved with Logistic Regression method.
