So, what’s my English Level?

What’s my English Level?


IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB), CEFR … what do these mean and how do they compare? More importantly, how do I know what my English level is?

You got your IELTS or TOEFL results – hurray! Congratulations! Ah, at least I think so?

Figuring out what your level of English is can be a challenge, especially as different parts of the world use different systems.

The table below should help you place yourself and choose the right English as a Second Language course for you.
