Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

 

Learning, Teaching, Assessment

 

 

Developed through a process of scientific research and wide consultation, this document provides a practical tool for setting clear standards to be attained at successive stages of learning and for evaluating outcomes in an internationally comparable manner. The Framework provides a basis for the mutual recognition of language qualifications, thus facilitating educational and occupational mobility. It is increasingly used in the reform of national curricula and by international consortia for the comparison of language certificates. A recent European Union Council Resolution (November 2001) recommended the use of this Council of Europe instrument in setting up systems of validation of language competences.

 

The Framework is a document which describes in a comprehensive manner

 

- the competences necessary for communication

- the related knowledge and skills

- the situations and domains of communication

 

The Framework is of particular interest to course designers, textbook writers, testers, teachers and teacher trainers - in fact to all who are directly involved in language teaching and testing.

 

It facilitates a clear definition of teaching and learning objectives and methods and provides the necessary tools for assessment of proficiency.

CLASSROOM RESEARCH

 

Classroom research is more than just teaching techniques and tricks, though; its basic idea might be best described as "the systematic investigation of the effects of our teaching on student learning for the purpose of improving instruction." It consists of two aspects: a repertoire of techniques for getting information from students about their learning and an effort to organize that information into a larger picture of practical learning theory.
