How to say upper-intermediate?

Posted by xiaophil April 22, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

Tags: upper-intermediate, 高中级, 中高级

It may seem like an obvious question, but I have heard it said two ways, 中高级 and 高中级.  In fact, it seems to me I have heard it said both ways at this website, although I could be wrong.  A certain Chinese person who I normally trust assures me that 中高级 is correct, but to me that doesn't make as much sense.  Doesn't the modifying word precede what it is modifying in Chinese?  Is it one of those cases where both are right?
