Based on the CEFR, at level B1 the user can understand the main points of clear standard written and spoken input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure etc., and can deal with most situations likely to arise while travelling in an area where the language is spoken.


The course is aimed at students who already have elementary knowledge of English (level A2) and who can deal with simple communication contexts on familiar topics.
