Promoting quality language teachings with the CEFRL

A tool to harmonize language teaching in Europe

the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(CEFRL) is an essential document that provides a common basis for language learning, teaching and assessment in Europe. Developed by the Council of Europe, it is widely used in the field of language education.

The CEFRL aims to promote transparency and consistency in language teaching in Europe. It is based on a scale of six levels, ranging from level A1 (beginner) to level C2 (full proficiency). These levels assess language skills in the areas of written and oral comprehension, written and oral expression, as well as interaction in the target language.

A pedagogy focusing on culture

The CEFR also provides tools and resources for the assessment of language skills. It offers assessment grids and skill descriptors that help teachers and learners evaluate their skill level and track their progress. These tools also facilitate mutual recognition of diplomas and language certifications across Europe.

Another important aspect of the CEFR is its vision of language learning as a continuous and dynamic process. It emphasizes communication and interaction, as well as the development of plurilingual and intercultural skills. The CEFR also encourages learner autonomy, emphasizing the importance of self-directed learning, intrinsic motivation and linguistic immersion.

Efficient language programs

The CEFR has had a significant impact on language teaching in Europe. It has contributed to harmonizing teaching practices and promoting linguistic mobility among learners. It has also influenced the creation of curricula and teaching materials that conform to CEFR standards.

In summary, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​is an essential instrument for the teaching and learning of languages ​​in Europe. It provides a common basis for the assessment and recognition of language skills, promotes learner mobility and encourages the development of plurilingual and intercultural skills. With the CEFR, learners can track their progress in a consistent way and teachers have a clear framework for designing their lessons and assessing their students.
