The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR, provides a common basis to describe language abilities that are allocated to certain levels and to compare them internationally. The CEFR defines skills with regard to reading, writing, listening and speaking on six levels that are allocated to three main categories:

A1 – A2 (basic user)

B1 – B2 (independent user)

C1 – C2 (proficient user)

TOEIC® test results are regularly adjusted to the descriptors of the CEFR in order to provide reliable and precise correlations. The TOEIC® Correlation Table comprises a detailed description of the test taker’s ability to communicate in spoken and written English in the workplace. The TOEIC® is therefore an informative index of language skills in accordance with the European Framework.
