Comparing Levels

Advanced (CEFR:C1) vs Proficiency (CEFR:C2)

Speaking C1

I can:

* express myself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.

* use language flexibly and effectively for social and professional purposes.

* formulate ideas and opinions with precision and relate my contribution skilfully to those of other speakers

Reading C1

I can understand:

* long and complex factual and literary texts, appreciating distinctions of style.

* specialised articles and longer technical instructions, even when they do not relate to my field.

Speaking C2

I can present a clear, smoothly-flowing description or argument in a style appropriate to the context and with an effective logical structure which helps the recipient to notice and remember significant points.

Reading C2

I can read with ease virtually all forms of the written language, including abstract, structurally or linguistically complex texts such as manuals, specialised articles and literary works.

Listening C1

I can understand:

* extended speech even when it is not clearly structured and when relationships are only implied and not signalled explicitly.

* television programmes and films without too much effort.

Writing C1

I can:

* express myself in clear, well-structured text, expressing points of view at some length.

* write detailed expositions of complex subjects in an essay or a report, underlining what I consider to be the salient issues.

* write different kinds of texts in a style appropriate to the reader in mind.

Listening C2

I have no difficulty in understanding any kind of spoken language, whether live or broadcast, even when delivered at fast native speed, provided I have some time to get familiar with the accent.

Writing C2

I can write clear, smoothly flowing text in an appropriate style. I can write complex letters, reports or articles, which present a case with an effective logical structure, which helps the recipient to notice and remember significant points. I can write summaries and reviews of professional or literary works.
