Assessing English: a common framework Friday, 16 March 16.30-18.30
Assessing someone’s competence in English is important but can be very subjective. One person’s ‘intermediate’ can be another person’s ‘advanced’. This session will introduce the Common European Framework which offers a set of practical ‘can do’ descriptions for different levels of competence in a language whether it be English, German, French or Spanish. English learning materials, courses, and tests are making increasing reference to the CEF. This session gives you an opportunity to come and find out what it is all about.
