30 minute mini-lessons of “General English Conversation”



The European Council has developed a common framework of reference for language learning, in order to facilitate, through the description of levels of language proficiency that can reach those who study a language, the development of learning programs and the mutual recognition of certifications in education systems of the different Member States.

They identified six levels of language proficiency: elementary A1 / A2, intermediate B1 / B2 and advanced C1 / C2.

Each course is designed to teach and acquire knowledge of written and spoken language according to the level of the student. Each level is assessed with a test.

Level A1 and A2 BASE / ELEMENTARY: ability to ask questions and give answers on information from everyday life, elementary description of places or people, use of numbers, etc.

Levels B1 and B2 PRE-INTERMEDIATE/ INTERMEDIATE: ability to understand the spoken language in a greater variety of contexts and use written language in citing facts, share information and opinions, describe projects, etc.

Level C1 and C2 ADVANCED: ability to understand and communicate successfully in a complex variety of contexts. Using writing in official documents or other. Appropriate use of specific terminology (business and other relevant industries).

Rate your level of English with the common frame of reference drawn up by the European Council (page 24).
