Levels B1 and B2 correspond to independent users of the language, i.e. those who have the necessary fluency to communicate without effort with native speakers.
Skills at level B2
One of the questions you might ask yourself when you read this information is, what language competences characterise a person who can prove they have a level B2 in English? It is specified as the following:
- Understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in their field of specialisation
- Interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers possible without strain for either party
- 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.
