Progress on a European level
Our course structure and level testing are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which constitutes the European standard framework for foreign language teaching.
After many years of research, the official Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) document was published in 2001 by the Council of Europe. It helps determine the candidate’s language level in terms of their knowledge in various skills groups.
Six different language levels were defined and serve as a reference in the language learning and teaching sector. An EU Council Resolution recommended the use of this Council of Europe grid to establish systems to determine language ability. Nowadays, it is an essential reference document.
