What is the CEFR?
The Common European Framework of Reference, CEFR, developed by the Council of Europe, is a framework for assessing foreign language learners’ achievements and proficiency.
Even though the CEFR is mostly a European scale, it’s now becoming a standard framework for language abilities worldwide, especially for European languages, such as Spanish.
The CEFR describes various abilities at different learning levels and provides a standard model for language syllabuses, curricula, textbooks, and examinations.
What are the CEFR levels?
The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels (A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2) by specifying what learners can understand and express at each stage.
