How to convert CEFR Levels to IELTS band scores? I got confused about the minimum requirements of English Language proficiency to obtain study visa of UK as the requirements are written in a CEFR term which is unfamiliar to me.
Well, CEFR stands for Common European Framework of References. It is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe. Its main aim is to provide a method of assessing and teaching which applies to all languages in Europe.
The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions which can be divided into six levels:
A Basic Speaker
B Independent Speaker
C Proficient Speaker
CEFR Levels can be compared with IELTS band scores to see whether you meet the minimum criteria of English language proficiency requirements.
