The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), estimates the candidates who study a european language, such as: English, Italian, French, German and Spanish.
The six levels of competence (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) are used and serve to offer a reference model for the preparation of didactic materials as well as of the assessment of linguistic knowledge.
Levels are divided into three broad areas of competences:
A – Beginner level
• A1 – Beginner
• A2 – Elementary
B – Intermediate level
• B1 – Intermediate
• B2 – Upper intermediate
C – Advanced level
• C1 – Advanced level or “full control” of the language
• C2 – Proficiency: able to perform complex tasks related to work and study.
