IWTYAL 104: How to reach C2 level in English

Sabina asks: “I’m trying to reach C2 level English, what should I do?”

In this episode:

  • Many native speakers are not C2 level
  • It’s not easy to reach and involves complex skills
  • Knowing the C2 level descriptions doesn’t necessarily help you know how to reach it
  • Focus on your subject area, and become an expert in that area
  • The language skills will follow quickly

C2 CEFR Descriptors:

  • Can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read.
  • Can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation.
  • Can express themselves spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in the most complex situations
