How our levels work

A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2... What do these levels mean for learners of French?

You might have seen that our courses are split into levels with names like A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 - these levels come from a standard called the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). If you're new to learning French, new to learning another language, or if you haven't studied French for some time, then these may look unfamiliar to you. 

We've put together this simple explainer video to show how these levels, developed by the Council of Europe, help us to describe language ability.
