The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment, abbreviated as CEFR or CEF, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages. The six reference levels  are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency.

  • Level A1 (basic user - breakthrough or beginner)
  • Level A2 (basic user - way stage or elementary)
  • Level B1 (independent user - threshold or intermediate)
