On each course’s page students will find the “suggested level” in order to take the course.
The levels are based on the CEFR (the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)from A1 to C2 but the definitions are more practical and more Fluentify focused. Here you can find the description of each level:
A1- You are at the very beginning of your English journey and ready to throw yourself out there and start speaking. You should have a basic understanding of English articles, pronouns, simple present tense, and common vocabulary such as everyday activities and jobs, nature, and things around the house. You can describe yourself physically and talk about the members of your family.
A2- You are past the absolute beginner stage- you can create some complete conversational sentences but you have a ways to go. You have a good understanding of the simple present and simple future tenses. You are able to complete simple activities in English such as going to the grocery store, ordering in a restaurant or cafe, and asking for directions (even if you may not understand the response!).
B1- You are a strong intermediate student and are able to hold a simple conversation with an English teacher. You should be able to use some more complex grammar tenses such as the present, past, and future continuous as well as the present and past perfect. You can go from home, to get a coffee, to work, and back home in English without a problem. Social situations might still be challenging but you’re getting there! However, with some guidance and practice you can also write simple text, emails, and give a short presentation in English.
B2- You are hitting the fluency level by maintaining casual conversations easily with native and non native English speakers. You should be able to use most English grammar tenses as well as some other complicated structures such as relative clauses and if – then statements. You are able to talk about a new TEDTalk, say what you want to accomplish by next year, and talk about your most embarrassing moment. You can also hold a job where simple English is required such as working in a restaurant, cafe or hotel where you work with other non-native speakers in a professional environment. If you’re determined and willing to work hard you could even take a university course in English. Holding a conversation over the phone still sounds scary, but you can work on it!
C1- You are very confident in your English skills and are able to interact easily in all settings where English is needed or used. Aside from mastering your English grammar, you should be able to incorporate popular idioms, phrasal verbs, and more colloquial language into your conversations. You are even able to pick up on sarcasm and tell some of your own jokes. You can easily manage a job where English is needed on a daily basis or attend a university course in English.
C2- You are an English pro! You have gained a true level of English fluency and are able to use English with confidence in all settings whether for school, traveling, or your career. You can easily manage all aspects of your personal and professional life in English. Don’t forget there’s always more to learn! English colloquialisms and idioms are constantly changing so make sure to stay up to date so that your English sounds natural and fluent.
