EduMeter Egypt is the official representative and organizer of The International Linguist Kangaroo (ILK) Contest – English in Egypt and The Middle East.
It is one of the largest international competitions in the English language. It is held in many countries of the world that use English as a second language and target students from grade 3 to grade 12.
• The questions of the tests are organised on five levels of competence addressed to students. These tests are designed based on The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
CEFRL is an abbreviation of the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment". In language teaching, different European countries used many different syllabuses. So, the Council of Europe decided to create a Framework, it describes what people can actually do in the language. The "Global scales" have three levels, and each level is divided into two stages.
A1 : beginner
A2 : elementary
B1 : intermediate
B2 : upper intermediate
C1 : Effective Operational Proficiency or advanced
