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.
A C1 language user can do the following:
- Can understand a wide range of demanding, longer clauses, and recognize implicit meaning.
- Can express ideas fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.
- Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.
- Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organizational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.
