Tallinn Language Centre / International House Tallinn offers English courses at ten (10) different levels of language proficiency.
The school operates an academic year from September to May which involves 160 academic hours of classroom study & approx. 40 academic hours of home assignments. However, students are not obliged to stay with us for a whole academic year and may join the school for shorter courses throughout the year.
The levels are designed to correspond to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions that can each be further divided into two levels; for each level, it describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing:
А - Basic User
А1 – Breakthrough
А2 - Waystage
В - Independent User
В1 - Threshold
В2 - Vantage
C - Proficient User
С1 - Effective Proficiency
