EU language levels: Level A1

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

Common European Framework of Reference for languages skills described in levels ranging from A1 for beginners to C2 for those who have completely mastered a particular language.

In addition, employers and educational institutions can thus easily compare different qualifications, and to understand their relationship with the tests that exist in their country.
