How proficient are you in a foreign language? The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) offers a handy measure.
The CEFR operates a scale of 1 to 6: proficiency levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
- Level group A = basic user – divided into A1 (lower) and A2 (upper)
- Level group B = independent user – divided into B1 (lower) and B2 (upper)
- Level group C = proficient user – divided into C1 (lower) and C2 (upper)
