Our e-learning platform bases the classification of individual videos on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR).
"Easy" corresponds to "A: elementary language use (A1 and A2)",
"Medium" corresponds to "B: independent language use (B1 and B2)",
"Difficult" corresponds to "C: competent language use (C1: advanced level of competence, C2: near-native fluency)".
You will find the CEFR classification of a course on the product tile and in the product information.
