B2 Level English
Discover the best way to move past the B2 level of English
You’ve successfully passed the basic levels of English and have reached the intermediate level. This is an achievement that you have to record and celebrate! It means that the English language has gone from being a complete stranger to being a welcome guest in your personal, academic, and/or professional life.
Now you can hold conversations with English speakers and you can understand a high percentage of what they say. You can also write and even read texts without having to consult the dictionary all the time. This is really satisfying and, of course, you deserve a big round of applause for your effort and dedication.
But your learning process isn’t over yet – and you know it. That’s why it’s time to keep moving ahead until you reach and surpass the B2 or upper intermediate level of English.
The best way to achieve this is by choosing a learning method like Smart Learning®, which was developed by the ABA English digital English academy based on the guidelines from Cambridge and the CEFR. More than a way to study, it’s a way to experience English. Best of all, you can go at your own pace and learn with what you like.
Ready to learn English at the B2 level?
When we talk about English levels, upper intermediate is one of the most sought after. Why? Because most students dream of moving to an English-speaking country, studying at a prestigious university, or working in a recognized multinational company.
What is B2 level English? It’s the fourth level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students are expected to be able to understand what others are saying to them and to be able to communicate effortlessly. They’re also expected to be able to understand and produce complex texts dealing with concrete and/or abstract topics.
Reaching the upper intermediate level implies commitment and dedication, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend long hours studying surrounded by old books, taking boring classes, and doing endless exercises. Now you can improve your English level by learning at your own pace and in a very entertaining way.
