CEFR International Language Standards

Lengalia offers Spanish courses at 6 different levels based on the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students who pass the final test in a course will receive a certificate of proficiency detailing their level of attainment. These certificates are widely accepted throughout the world.

CEFR International Language Standards
Launched in 2001, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is a widely accepted standard for describing language ability in Europe and, increasingly, beyond. The CEFR levels have identified three main types of learner – Basic, Independent, and Proficient – each of which is subdivided into two levels, creating a total of six – A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. The recommendations contained within the CEFR aim to facilitate transparency and comparability in the provision of language education and qualifications across different countries.
