Relating language curricula, tests and examinations to the Common European Framework of       Reference (RELANG)

In recent years the Council of Europe‘s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) has become a powerful instrument for shaping language education policies. The growing acceptance and use of the Common Reference Levels of language proficiency presented in the CEFR has created a situation in which, all over Europe, public bodies, examination institutes, language schools and university departments concerned with the teaching and testing of languages seek to relate their curricula and examinations to the Common Reference Levels. The RELANG initiative offers training to educational authorities in the Member States of the European Union and the European Centre for Modern Languages in relating language examinations to the levels of proficiency defined in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in a valid and equitable way.
