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.
