Lingoda learning levels and the CEFR

What is the CEFR?

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an internationally recognized standard that describes language proficiency levels.
In simpler terms, the framework helps to explain your level from beginner (A1) to advanced (C1). We use CEFR levels to structure our courses and lessons.
