What is the syllabus of the course and what level are students expected to achieve?
The course syllabus is aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment (CEFR). The CEFR is a framework, published by the Council of Europe in 2001, which describes language learners’ ability in terms of speaking, reading, listening and writing.
The CEFR is often used by policy-makers to set minimum language requirements, by educational institutions and employers to assess the levels of ability amongst learners of foreign languages.
These six levels are named as follows:
- C2 Mastery
- C1 Effective Operational Proficiency
- B2 Vantage
- B1 Threshold
- A2 Waystage
- A1 Breakthrough
- A1 – A2 Basic user
- B1 – B2 Independent user
- C1 – C2 Proficient user
The text of the CEFR emphasises learners’ ‘communicative needs’, including dealing with the business of everyday life, exchanging information and ideas, and achieving wider and deeper intercultural understanding. This is to be achieved by ‘basing language teaching and learning on the needs, motivations, characteristics and resources of learners.’ (2001a:3) This conveys the CEFR’s communicative, action-oriented approach. This approach is broad and should be coherent with the aims of most school language learning. It is based on the model of language use and language learning presented in Chapter 2 of the CEFR. In this model the two key notions are tasks and interaction. Language use is seen as purposeful, involving communication of meanings which are important to learners, in order to achieve goals. T
