The first time I lived in Sweden I did a 4-month language course at university. The second time I lived in Sweden I wanted to continue with Svensk för invandrare (Swedish for immigrants, SFI) but I was declined because I had already reached the highest level for the courses on offer from the municipality, so I briefly did a Swedish course at a Folkhögskola instead. However, I have never tested my level according to CEFR scales. Does the final SFI level correspond to any particular level within CEFR?
According to The Swedish Teacher,
- SFI course A corresponds to CEFR level A1,
- SFI course B corresponds to CEFR level A1/A2,
- SFI course C corresponds to CEFR level A2/A2 +,
- SFI course D corresponds to CEFR B1/B1+.
