The Alborz Spanish Language Institute holds courses for the six language levels proposed by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR, as well as the Curricular Plan of the Instituto Cervantes, PCIC.
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an international standard for describing language ability. It’s widely accepted all over Europe and it’s being increasingly accepted all over the world. Nowadays, the foreing language teaching manuals, international exams and methods are ruled by the instructions of the CEFR.
In the specific case of the Spanish language, we also have the Curricular Plan of the Instituto Cervantes, PCIC, that develops and sets out the reference levels for our language according to the recommendations made by the European Council in the European context.
The PCIC, such as the CEFR, indicates specifically the needed competencies that should be developed during the Spanish language learning process. It's not only used by language teachers, but also by students interested to know the abilities and competence necessary to reach during the whole learning process.
