* The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) describes language ability on a scale of levels from A1 (for beginners) up to C2 (for those who have mastered a language). This makes it easy for anyone involved in language teaching and testing to see the level of different qualifications. It also means that employers and educational institutions can easily compare qualifications and see how they relate to exams they already know in their own country.
