Learn more about the levels

Our Online Spanish Courses are based on the linguistic competence defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, and assessment.

The CEFR was designed to provide a transparent, coherent, and comprehensive basis for the elaboration of language syllabuses and curriculum guidelines, the design of teaching and learning materials, and the assessment of foreign language proficiency.

The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels: A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2
