CEFR – Common European Framework of Reference of Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment
Educational Program and Progressions
Our syllabus and curriculum are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) ensuring continuous progress and the acquisition of internationally recognized levels.
There are 6 levels to be reached : A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
For each level, a certain number of sessions or teaching hours is needed to cover all the aspects that have to be mastered.
We believe that learning a foreign language is about communication. Therefore our educational approach is focusing on conversation skills, laying on the latest methodological innovations. Right from the very beginning, students learn how to express themselves and are placed in an interactive atmosphere.
Students can certify each level that they reached by taking the DELF or DALF exam related to their level.
|A1 Breakthrough||A2 Waystage|
|You can introduce yourself and others and can ask, answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you have. You can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly.||You can understand and communicate in areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).|
|B1 Threshold||B2 Vantage|
|You can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in areas where the language is spoken. You can describe experiences, events, dreams, hopes, ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.||You can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics. You can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers without strain for either party.|
|C1 Effectiveness||C2 Mastery|
|You can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. You can use language flexibility and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.||You can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. You can express yourself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely.|
