CEFR : Common European Framework of Reference



Since its publication in 2001, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEF) has had a wide-ranging impact on the teaching and learning of languages around the world.
People have been learning, teaching, and assessing language for centuries. There have been ways of describing levels of language learning and assessment.What may be an intermediate level in one country may be an upper-intermediate level in another.

In short, we need a common language by which we can describe language learning, teaching, and assessment.
