We use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) for our assessments. CEFRL divides learners intomultiple levels of proficiency, detailing at each level what learners should be able to achieve in the areas of reading, listening, speaking and writing.These benchmarks are used by all Alliance Françaisecentres around the world – and many other European language schools – for determining a foreign language learner’s level and progression.

CEFR divides learners into three broad divisions; A, B and C, and generally labelled beginner, intermediate and expert. Each division contains at least two subdivisions each, for example A1 and A2.
