SIX LEVELS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY
The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels: A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2. It also defines three ‘plus’ levels (A2+, B1+, B2+)
Based on empirical research and widespread consultation, this scheme makes it possible:
- to establish learning and teaching objectives
- to review curricula
- to design teaching materials and
- to provide a basis for recognising language qualifications thus facilitating educational and occupational mobility.
The CEFR is used in teacher education, the reform of foreign language curricula, the development of teaching materials and for the comparability of qualifications.
