B1 Intermediate Level

Rhenus Language Academy

Current course offers

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) describes B1 learners as independent users of the language, i.e. those who have the necessary fluency to communicate without effort with native speakers. The CEFR is a globally recognized language system that defines and explains the different levels of oral and written expression and comprehension for languages, including English. It consists of 6 levels of reference: three blocks (A or basic user, B or independent user and C or proficient user), which are in turn divided into two sub-levels, 1 and 2. 


What language competences characterise a B1 level learner in English? According to the CEFR, the learner:

    • Is able to understand the main points of clear texts in standard language if they are about topics with which they are familiar, whether in work, study or leisure contexts.
    • Can cope with most of the situations that might arise on a trip to areas where the language is used.
    • Is able to produce simple, coherent texts about topics with which they are familiar or in which they have a personal interest.
    • Can describe experiences, events, wishes and aspirations, as well as briefly justifying opinions or explaining plans.


The intermediate step-by-step curriculum is designed to help  students to continue to build and expand their knowledge of English. The B1 level is broken up into two courses (B1.1 and B1.2) of 72 double lessons each for a total of 144 academic hours.
