What level am I? What level should I be?
Most language learners ask this question at some point. One of the most common tools to evaluate language level is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which is an international standard for describing language ability; it describes language ability on a six-point scale – A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. There are several free tests you can take online to determine your level but these don’t capture every aspect.
These don’t evaluate your speaking ability, your writing skills, or comprehension of conversational language, which are potentially the most important skills. If you are using English in your professional life, I highly recommend having your English evaluated by a certified coach or teacher. Most times, a few sessions can make a huge difference!
Many English teachers work with only certain levels too. I prefer working with C1 and C2 level because I have experience in business that can enhance their professional skills that most ESL teachers don't possess, so this makes me unique. No matter your level though, I have great partners in over 20 countries that can evaluate your skills and offer advice on the best ways to reach the level you need to be successful in business.
