If you wonder what your level of English is, let us guide you through the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Common European Framework for Languages helps students and teachers to better understand the level of language proficiency.
CEFRL was created by the Council of Europe in order to simplify the levels for all European languages. Initially only used for languages spoken in Europe, a comparative scale can be found for non-European languages as well.
Recruiters in multinational companies also use the CEFRL while preparing job descriptions. Depending on the position, the job descriptions will require an A1, a B2 or a C1 CEFRL level.
If you have trouble decising what your level is, have a look at our checklist for each level.
An A2 language user can do the following:
- Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
- Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.
- Can describe in simple terms aspects of their background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
