Do you want to be fluent in a language? Here what you need to learn!

Hi guys,

a little while back, the 26th September, we all celebrated the European Day of Languages. At that time we were focused on how important is to learn new languages.

Now, we want to take a step forward and ask you “How much to you want to be fluent?”. Well, Europe has established a framework to classify the proficiency in languages: the  so-called Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The CEFR divides learners into three main divisions which can then be divided into six another levels:

A Basic User
A1 Breakthrough or beginner
A2 Waystage or elementary
B Independent User
B1 Threshold or intermediate
B2 Vantage or upper intermediate
C Proficient User
C1 Effective Operational Proficiency or advanced
C2 Mastery or proficiency

The CEFR describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in the four main aspect of language learning: reading, listening, speaking and writing, at each level.

So, while you all think that C2 should be your goal, you should also keep in mind that with B1 you can still enjoy your targeted language for some useful purposes. What you need to do, at this stage, is to set up your goal.

In order to do this, here you have a very useful self assessment test to evaluate your language skills and set your next challenges!

Keep learning while having fun!
