The book entitled Language functions revisited: Theoretical and empirical bases for language construct definition across the ability range introduces the theoretical and empirical bases for the definition of language learning level in functional ‘Can Do’ terms for English Profile (a collaborative programme designed to enhance the learning, teaching and assessment of English). The volume provides a review of the CEFR and related material in terms of both theoretical basis and practical applications; guidance to users of the CEFR on adapting the framework to local needs; tables mapping the progression from A1 to C2 for English; and a methodology for identifying the level of input texts for teaching and testing reading skills.

Since its publication in the year 2001 the CEFR has been translated into 38 languages and disseminated widely in Europe, but also in parts of Asia and Latin America.

Targeted readership:
Academics, policy makers, curriculum designers, textbook writers, postgraduate students, and examination board staff.
