VoA has *three* levels of "Learning English" (as they call it).
See http://learningenglish.voanews.com/. I'm not sure which
CEFR levels they correspond to, and as yet have not been able
to find any description of the VoA levels, let alone a mapping.
(I'm sure an approximate mapping can be found, by someone familiar
with both systems.)
I've seen other (news) sites using multiple levels of "simple language",
e.g. http://www.newsinlevels.com/, which also has three levels.
