Levels of language proficiency according to the Council of Europe (CEFR)

The Language Center defines the objectives of language training according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which was developed by the Council of Europe (Council of Europe). The CEFR, in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), describes the knowledge and skills students must develop in order to communicate effectively in a language. Furthermore, 6 skill levels have been defined in the Reference Framework with which the progress of students can be measured in every phase of the learning process.

The aim of the CEFR

Through a common description of objectives, content and methods, the Common European Framework of Reference increases the transparency of curricula, syllabuses and qualifications. This promotes international cooperation in the field of modern languages. The availability of objective criteria to describe language proficiency facilitates mutual recognition of qualifications obtained in different learning environments and therefore benefits the mobility of knowledge and work in Europe.
