All European languages follow the CEFR, Common European Framework of References for languages. The CEFR organizes language proficiency in six levels, A1 to C2. Currently we offer each level from A1 to B2. If you are looking for a higher level, please write to us with your specific requirements.

We recommend A1 if you are just exploring the language.

We recommend a B2 or C1 if you are looking to teach or secure a job in which the language will be your primary mode of communication.
