What is the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and why is important to considered it when I learn a language?

The CEFR is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across the world. It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project “Language Learning for European Citizenship” between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which applies to all languages.

Using CEFR can help us learn with an structure which support us to learn what is actually needed to be able to be fluent in a language and it also helps us to track our progress, giving us step stones to celebrate our achievements. 

What are the CEFR levels?

The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels (A1 and A2, B1 and B2, C1 and C2) by specifying what learners can understand and express at each stage.

How much time does it take to achieve level A1?

The time it takes to progress in a language depends on various factors such as if your native language is related to Spanish in some degree, if you are an experienced language learner,  the time you invest doing self-study and guided learning hours or the motivation you have to learn Spanish. So even though it depends on many factor there are indeed some recommendations based on the CEFR that people can follow to know how much time is needed to integrated each of the 6 levels.
