As an Erasmus+ exchange student at HAN, it’s important you understand what level of English is expected for the program you want to take. So you can participate easily during class. And outside the classroom. The levels are A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2. Read on to see what the different levels entail.
Level A - Basic user
You understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases. You can introduce yourself to others and can ask/answer questions about personal details such as where you’re from, acquaintances you might have in common and your interests. Your interaction skills are simple. And you can talk with people as long as they speak slowly and clearly and are prepared to help if you mix up a word or phrase.
You understand sentences and common phrases that deal with personal and family information, shopping, local geography and work. Using simple and routine words, you can discuss your background, immediate environment and diverse needs.
Level B - Independent user
You understand the main points of clear, standard conversation about familiar matters regularly encountered at work, school and during leisure time. Dealing with most situations comes easily for you. You can produce simple, connected content on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. And can describe verbally your opinions, experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions.
You understand the main ideas of complex content, along with concrete and abstract topics. You can communicate fluently and spontaneously. And that makes regular interaction with native speakers effortless for all involved. Producing clear, detailed content on a wide range of topics is easy for you. And you can give your viewpoint on a topical issue and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
Level C - Proficient user
You understand a wide range of demanding, longer content, and can recognize its implicit meaning. You can express yourself fluently and spontaneously without having to search for words. You’re flexible and effective when dealing with language for social, academic and professional purposes. Furthermore, you can produce clear, well-structured, detailed content on complex subjects. And show controlled use of organizational patterns, connectors and cohesive language.
You understand just about everything you hear and read. You can summarize information from different spoken and written sources. And can reconstruct arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. You communicate spontaneously, fluently and with precision. And you can differentiate finer shades of meaning. Even in more complex situations. This is the language level of a highly trained, near-native speaker.
