What is B2 English level?

The B2 proficiency level (Upper-Intermediate English) is the fourth from six reference levels defined by CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). B2 is the most demanded proficiency level for the job positions requiring the daily active use of language. Compared to the alternative English language assessment frameworks, it is similar to IELTS level 5-6 or TOEFL score 87-109.

The CEFR Common Reference levels are fully defined in a structured set of illustrative ‘can-do’ descriptors for many different categories. The main descriptors for B2 level include also these ‘can-do’ statements:

Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation.

Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.

Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
