If you decide to embark on the exciting learning journey with us by enrolling on either Beginner 1 or Intermediate 1, you will become CEFR-certified in A1 or A2, depending on the level you choose. The CEFR system has been developed by the Council of Europe, and our Direct English method author, Louis Alexander, was one of the founders of the CEFR system.

The CEFR system was created to validate language learning ability by giving students a firm understanding of English grammar and vocabulary. The CEFR Framework was designed to convey the different levels of oral and written comprehension. Teachers can use this framework to determine what level their students are and if they require any extra help. Direct English Live’s levels are aligned with the CEFR’s framework. Download our SKILL CHART to find out more about how our levels compare with IELTS.

An A1 learner (Beginner 1) will be able to lead a simple conversation about themselves and the world around them, about food and orders, discuss measurement, size and price.

An A2 learner (Intermediate 1) will be able to understand and express their opinions about a particular topic, understand the main points of texts regarding their career, school or social lives. Additionally, they will be able to communicate without sustained effort to native speakers.
