CEFRL FRENCH LEVELS

CEFRL stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. These French language levels provide a way of describing a person’s French language proficiency.

There are six levels of French : A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. A1 is the lowest level in terms of ability and C2 is the highest. Our French learning courses focus on conversational, reading, writing & listening french skills.

BEGINNER LEVEL | BASIC USER

You will be able to:
• understand and use common expressions and basic phrases aimed at satisfying basic needs.
• introduce yourself and others; ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you have.
• interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

You will be able to:
• understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
• communicate according to simple and routine tasks requiring simple and direct exchanges of information on familiar and routine matters.
• describe, in simple terms, aspects of your background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL | INDEPENDENT USER

You will be able to:
• understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc.
• deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken.
• produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest.
• describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.

You will be able to:
• understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in your field of specialization
• interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party
• produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options

PROFICIENT USER

You will be able to:
 • understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning.
• express yourself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.
• use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.
• produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.

You will be able to:

  • understand with ease virtually everything heard or read.
  • summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing   arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation.
  • express yourself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.

At the end of each level, students can appear for the corresponding DELF or DALF exams at Alliance Française de Pune, the only official center of DELF DALF exams in Pune.
