B1 Level English

Reach the B1 level of English

Learning English is a task that you can’t just walk away from. Many students who have some knowledge of the language feel that what they’ve learned is enough. But in an increasingly competitive market, learning English has become a necessity.

If you’re already able to understand what others are saying, hold conversations, and even read and write some texts, don’t miss this opportunity to expand your vocabulary and acquire greater skills. Establishing a Daily Plan will allow you to reach the B1 level of English faster than you thought possible.

Our new Smart Learning® method allows you to learn with what you like. It’s a unique and personalized learning experience that adapts to the rhythm of your life and your tastes. And, as if that weren’t enough, it allows you to get in touch with students from all over the world and with native teachers. 

Do you know the advantages of B1 level English?

Achieving an intermediate level isn’t only important to obtain a university degree, a scholarship, or a job, but also to demonstrate that your knowledge of the English language qualifies you as an “independent user,” according to the CEFR regulations.

In other words, although you still have a ways to go, your knowledge of grammar and the vocabulary you have acquired will allow you to address different topics, such as sports, holidays, health, free time, education, and jobs, among others.

Similarly, you have the ability to hold conversations in English to express your opinions and future plans, to understand and elaborate on longer and more complex texts, demonstrating that you have a great command of the simple tenses, the future tenses, and the present perfect.
