Elementary (CEFR A1 – A2) Can communicate with enough language for basic needs and simple situations.

Pre-Intermediate (CEFR A2) Can communicate with enough language for everyday practical needs.

Intermediate (CEFR B1) Can communicate effectively in most situations but sometimes has to work hard to communicate effectively.

Upper Intermediate (CEFR B2) Can communicate effectively in most situations and usually can easily re-phrase in order to be understood.

You will take a test on the first day and your teachers will review your progress regularly. They will give you a report and certificate at the end of your course.
