What is the CEFR?
Our language courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This internationally recognized system defines different levels across a range of languages, allowing an international comparison of proficiency levels.
The CEFR organises language proficiency in six levels, A1 to C2. You'll find an overview over these levels here:
