C1

EU language levels: Level C1

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. So everyone involved in the process of teaching and testing languages (students, teachers, people who train teachers, etc.) can easily be familiar with the levels which belong to different qualifications. 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.
