How do I know what level of English I have?
You can take the free EF SET test to find out your level of English, or be guided by the Common European Framework definition of levels:
A1 - Beginner:
You can answer simple questions (e.g. What's your name?) and have a command of basic vocabulary (e.g. colors, animals, parts of the house, etc).
You can ask questions and communicate using simple verb tenses (present, past, future), with everyday vocabulary.
B1 - Intermediate:
You can understand quite a lot by listening carefully (e.g. you can understand part of spoken conversations) and elaborate more complex sentences (e.g. using conditionals and perfect tenses).
B2 - Advanced Intermediate:
You can now watch movies in English without subtitles, listen to songs and manage to recognize phrases, use more complex verb tenses and have a much more complete vocabulary.
C1 - Advanced:
You can understand conversations on different topics, you have no problem starting a conversation. You can switch from one language to another while speaking (yes, you already think in English...you can even dream in English).
C2 - Expert / Native:
Oh honey, you don't even need to make an effort in communicating with others. English is just within your DNA.
