The English Curriculum used by DYNAMO is based on the internationally recognised and respected Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The CEF is a guideline created by the Council of Europe. It grades grades language proficiency in any language, and is the official means of describing learner achievements in schools, universities and language institutions across Europe.
WHAT ARE THE CEFR LEVELS?
The CEF includes six reference levels from A1 to C2, breaking down language ability in reading, listening, speaking and writing.
USING THE CEFR TO MAP A STUDENT'S LEARNING JOURNEY
The Association of Language Testers in Europe, also known as ALTE, used the CEF to create a simplified set of 400+ descriptors for language examinations relating to the Common Reference Levels. These descriptors are in the form of "can-do statements", each detailing what a learner can do at every level. These descriptors form the core of the syllabus for our General English courses.
