B 8. What is the "Common European Framework of Reference" (CEFR)?

The "Common European Framework of Reference" (CEFR) indicates your level of proficiency of your foreign language independent of the language you are learning or the textbook series you are using. Modern European textbooks state the level of language proficiency aimed by a remark about the CEFR level. The levels "A1" and "A2" indicate beginners, "B1" and "B2" intermediate and "C1" and "C2" almost or equal native speaker's proficiency.

For more information about the CEFR please refer to the Wikipedia article about the CEFR or the Language Policy Division of the Council of Europe for more detailed information.
