Book: Assessing the Language of Young Learners

Chapter: The Common European Framework of Reference

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.30081


In this chapter the levels of the CEFR are examined, looking for any possible correspondence between the different levels and what young learners, across different age groups, have been found to be capable of in their L2. Some shortcomings of the CEFR for use with young learners are also noted.
