VoA has *three* levels of "Learning English" (as they call it).
See 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., which also has three levels.
