VIDEOS FROM THE WEBINAR ON THE “CEFR COMPANION VOLUME AND PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR IMPLEMENTATION” ARE NOW AVAILABLE.

The Education Policy Division of the Council of Europe organised a webinar on 30 January 2018 to present the CEFR Companion Volume with New Descriptors that adds a number of new illustrative descriptor scales to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment (CEFR).

The CEFR Companion Volume with New Descriptors includes:

  • newly developed illustrative descriptor scales that are introduced alongside the existing ones;

  • schematic tables which group scales belonging to the same category (communicative language activities or aspects of competence);

  • a short rationale for each scale, explaining the thinking behind the categorisation; and

  • descriptors that were developed and validated but not subsequently included in the illustrative descriptors are also made available in an appendix.

In addition to the presentation of new descriptor scales the webinar addressed to issues related to exploiting the CEFR Companion Volume to;

  • broaden teachers’ conceptualisation of foreign/second language teaching,

  • foster enrichment and positive impact through the curriculum, and

  • ensure a balanced and principled approach to assessing the language competences of learners.

The videos of the expert presentations and questions & answers sessions are now available on Vimeo.
