The levels: The Common European Framework for Languages, a document released and updated by the Council of Europe, has identified six levels of language learning. These levels describe what a person should be able to do at different stages of learning. We are not talking about grammar knowledge, but the ability to communicate with a language. What can you do in Italian? At which level? Levels go from “basic user” to “independent user” to “proficient user”.

How do you know your level? Read the general descriptions here.
