Assessing language levels
The CEF Scale
The CEF (Common European Framework) is the widely recognised reference scale for languages developed by the Council of Europe for evaluating and comparing language levels. PET uses the scale to track the progress of our course participants.
We have divided each standard level of the CEF scale into three sublevels, to enable us to determine the participants’ progress and development more accurately. According to our version, for example, A1.3 is a more solid level within the A1 band than A1.1.
