 What does B1 mean?

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is a recommendation to compare the language aquisition and language skills of learners throughout all European languages. There are 6 levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) describing what learners are able to do and speak after having completed the respective level. Completing B1 implies:
