Common European Framework of Reference

We follow the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) standards, which is the most globalized standard for language assessment.

The CEFR is divided into three levels: A, B and C.

    • A:  Beginner
    • B: Intermediate
    • C: Advanced

Once a student reaches the B level, it implies that they have become bilingual, and they are prepared to communicate in an English-speaking country.

Speak Easy

Our initial level, Speak Easy (A0) is a proprietary system of Academia de Lenguas. This system has proven to be the fastest way for a student to grasp language basics.


Cambridge University Press

From Elementary (A1) to Advanced (C1), we use the Cambridge University Press methodology. This system for learning English which the university defines as the “Integral Communicative Method”, focuses mainly on oral communication.

During this journey through the world of language, you will be able to master four skills: speaking, reading, writing, and listening.

Through Academia de Lenguas, you will get the chance to take the Cambridge English Qualifications exams which have been developed for the purpose of learning English more effectively. These certifications are badges of excellence and are recognized by thousands of organizations around the world.
