Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

My Earth Education uses the popular CEFR standard (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) to guide our students to the best courses for them. However, please note that this reference is purely a guideline. My Earth Education does not do formal testing and evaluates our students according to their potential. The CEFR English levels are widely accepted as the global standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.

We teach students aged between 10 – 16 at levels B1 to C2.

The level in which a student learns English is different for all students. This is why we offer two main levels and differentiate within these levels.


The teacher adapts the courseware according to the students learning style, pace and interests.

Our small group sizes allow for the content and level to be targeted at the individual. Question techniques are used to extract prior knowledge and build on the students existing level of English.

We encourage students to ask each other questions and to support each others individual learning journeys.


Our intermediate courses are aimed at students with a B1 level of English, as the courses progress the student moves from B1 to B2.

Students begin by learning simple topic based vocabulary and practise basic conversation, this is built up individually throughout the course. By the end of each course the student knows more advanced vocabulary and can have conversations about solutions to global problems, express their opinions on global topics and exercise critical thinking.

Example Vocabulary:

  • Habitat
  • Pollution
  • Species

Example Text:

‘The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean.’ – Intermediate Oceans Course, B1


Our advanced courses are aimed at students at C1 and C2. These lessons involve more debate, conversation and independent thinking. Students learn more advanced topic based vocabulary and go in depth into mature topics on sustainability, ecology and mitigation.

Example Vocabulary:

  • Habitat Fragmentation
  • Mitigation
  • Carbon Sequestering

Example Text:

‘By empowering communities, taking legal action and creating local, national and global campaigns, Farwiza and her team are helping to show the way for true sustainable development for their people.’ – Advanced Forests Course, C1
