General Information

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

The aim of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is to provide a tool for setting standards and achieving a higher degree of transparency in language learning and teaching. Thus, it facilitates the mutual recognition of language qualifications and certificates and promotes the cooperation between educational institutions of different countries. International language certificates (TOEFL, Cambridge, IELTS etc.) as well as DAAD language tests and DaF certificates (TestDaF, telc, Goethe) are based on the CEFR.

The CEFR defines levels of language proficiency in the fields of communicative skills, active and receptive skills and language skills for specific purposes. These levels range from A1 for beginners to C2 for the highest level of language proficiency. For a precise breakdown of each level's competences please click here.

All language courses offered by CLIC comply with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The time needed for the average learner to reach the next language level varies depending on the complexity of the language. Thus, language courses at CLIC take one, two or even three semesters to complete one level. As an example, the level A1 (beginners):

  • Spanish: one semester to complete level A1
  • Brazilian-Portuguese, French, Italian, Russian: two semesters to complete level A1 (A1.1 + A1.2)
  • Languages that require to learn a new alphabet take three semesters (A1.1 + A1.2 + A1.3).
