Competencies and certificates
according to the European Framework of Reference
The designations A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 indicate the competence levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (GER). They enable good comparability of acquired language skills and clearly state what one has to be able to do at the individual levels.
