Our course levels are completely designed according to the guidelines of CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions (Basic, Independent and Proficient users) that can be divided into six levels; for each level, it describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency.
