You are a language teacher. You want to find a reading text for your students. It should neither be too easy nor too difficult for them – just at the right level. With your experience, you can have a good guess of its CEFR level. Let’s admit it, though, our guess is not always accurate.
If you are looking for pinpoint results, Cathoven AI has created a CEFR Checker just for that. You can use it for free inside Cathoven Language Hub.
What is CEFR?
In case you haven’t heard of it, CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference. It is the most trusted language ability measurement system in the world. It ranks students as beginner, intermediate and advanced. CEFR is also used to rank the difficulty of teaching materials like reading and listening.
Organisations like Cambridge, Oxford, British Council, etc. rely on CEFR to structure their teaching content.
The levels are ranked from A1 to C2, with A1 being the lowest and C2 the highest. A1 and A2 are beginner levels; B1 and B2 are intermediate, and C1 and C2 are advanced.
How Does CEFR Checker work ?
CEFR Checker is a smart analyser. Making use of multiple machine learning models developed with state-of-the-art techniques, it analyses the sentence structure, tenses, and vocabulary in a given piece of text and estimates its CEFR level.
