Common European Framework

The Common European Framework (CEFR) is a guideline created by the Council of Europe to help grade language proficiency across Europe although over recent years it has filtered beyond recognition solely in Europe hence being commonly referred to as CFR. It is now commonly known around the world.


Levels

The CEFR divides learners into six different levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. SpeechRevision is tailored towards Intermediate to Advanced levels (B1 to C2) learners. This is because B is the minimum expected level as an entry requirement for many academic courses.
