Spanish Levels with Enforex
Enforex organizes our courses into 6 different levels of Spanish. This structure follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, as well as the guidelines of Instituto Cervantes. Additionally, Enforex's 6 levels correspond exactly to the U.S. university system, so that you may receive credits from your home school.
Each level, with the exception of level 6 (Proficiency), is divided into sublevels varying from lesser to greater linguistic knowledge. This is to ensure you're situated in the exact level where you should be. We'll assess your Spanish level on the first day of class with a written and oral placement test.
You can also assess your level online right now, although you will take the test on upon arrival in Spain regardless: Online Spanish Test.
