Understand your English level

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is a way of describing language ability and is often used to help language learners choose learning materials and courses at the right level.

The CEFR has six levels from A1 to C2. For each level, the CEFR describes what a learner can do when speaking, reading, listening and writing in English. 

The British Council has produced a useful table for learners to understand the levels of British Council courses, the CEFR levels and different exams.
