What does Yaudat offer?

Yaudat offers training at all levels of competency to suit your specific needs – from basic user to advanced levels of proficiency. Our tutors use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) to assess skills and competencies in English at different levels. This also allows students, where necessary, to gain certification through taking internationally recognised examinations such as IELTS, Cambridge and Aptis. In addition to English Yaudat offers training in French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin and other languages. Programs aim to develop learners’ foreign language fluency so they can confidently communicate on both a professional and personal level.

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED
LEVELS OF ENGLISH

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) created by the Council of Europe is the system that defines and explains the different levels of oral and written expression and comprehension for European languages, including English. It is mainly used in Europe, though there are other countries that also take it as a reference.

This framework is of great use to our tutors, as it enables them to assess each student's language skills in an objective and measurable way. For people who need to prove their English proficiency for employment purposes, the CEFR allows them to compare their exam results with the language requirements for specific roles. While the Cambridge BEC and Aptis examinations have been designed to meet the needs of business users, Yaudat can also help prepare for more general Cambridge examinations or IELTS if preferred. Our Senior Tutor is available to advise on which examination is the most appropriate to meet your personal or corporate needs.

The "Global scales" have three user levels (A - basic, B - independent
and C - proficient), and each level is divided into two:
