The CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) was introduced in 2001 and highly debated in the beginning. This conversation however has become silent and the six reference levels are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.It seems that it has normalized like marks in school. And yet, is this the case?
We are looking forward to a public discussion which will be sparked by Geoff Tranters 10min presentation on ‘10 things you did not know about CEFR’.
This is a public discussion and we invite the audience to freely share and comment.
