COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK OF REFERENCE
The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) is the standard used around the world to benchmark language ability. The CEFR has six levels starting at A1 through to C2. It describes the things that language learners Can Do at each level of learning a language, and covers all four key language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Our international assessments are a reliable and objective way to monitor students’ progress and find out their CEFR levels. Our exams informed the original development of the CEFR, and we have been continuously involved in its development and implementation.
See how Cambridge English Qualifications are aligned to the different levels of the CEFR in this table.
