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

The "Common European Framework of Reference" (CEFR) indicates the level of your proficiency in a foreign language. You will find, for example, that most modern European textbooks use the CEFR to indicate their level of language proficiency. The levels "A1" and "A2" represent beginner levels, "B1" and "B2" intermediate, and "C1" and "C2" almost or equal to native speaker's proficiency.

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