Working from these principles the CEFR encourages us to think and say that an A1 student can exchange basic opinions on. about the domains in which we use language social public matches players and teams but a C2 student can describe. occupational and educational It then suggests we consider matches and incidents in detail using a range of language. specific situations within these domains the people we might including colloquial expressions and jargon As a teacher or. need to interact with the objects we may use the things we materials writer we can then think of the language students. may read or listen to and the things we may need to do with will need to achieve these levels and how we might present. language It then tries to describe not only what a language user and practise it. can do but also what they are able to do in the language both Furthermore the can do statements describe achievement. generally and in specific skills domains and situations such and current ability not the student s future level the language. as Informal discussion with friends or Formal discussion required to reach that level or the time it will take No. and meetings The CEFR also encourages and comments on coursebook can guarantee a level a student will attain and it. areas such as intercultural awareness self directed learning is for you to judge whether the language presented will help. paralinguistics gesture mime etc mediating i e interpreting students achieve their objectives. and translation which have perhaps been less common Finally existing coursebook level descriptors in ELT elementary. features of ELT materials pre intermediate etc do not exactly fit with the CEFR and nor. are the CEFR levels necessarily even steps It seems likely that. How are the levels of the CEFR organised moving from C1 to C2 for example will take a lot longer than. The six levels the CEFR describes range from A1 students with A1 to A2 largely because of the different amounts of vocabulary. an elementary level of English to C2 students who can use the learning each entails. language fluently and with precision However note that there For all these reasons this book has been developed for. is also a level below A1 A0 is the point at which people start students who are at one level and who are working towards. with very little or no language A1 is the first point at which we the next level This means that some tasks and language. can describe a limited range of abilities in a number of skills input particularly at the beginning of the book are aimed. and domains For example students probably need to be able more at revising and teaching language to achieve the lower. to recognize a substantial number of words say 300 for basic level while most other input is aimed at achieving the higher. reading and listening The CEFR also allows for steps between level Note though that in any one class students will achieve. 2 Outcomes Upper Intermediate National Geographic Learning. different levels in any one task including being below or. above the level expected If this happens consistently you are. probably using the wrong level book or the student is in the. wrong class for them That is for you to assess,How does Outcomes match the aims of the.
Outcomes was written very much with the CEFR in mind We. think about what we want students to be able to do and the. kind of conversation they ll have first we write some models. we notice the specific language they may need grammar. words or phrases and we try to present that language in. exercises to help them achieve these goals When we teach. grammar or vocabulary we try to think of clear examples that. might be used in particular situations We also looked at a lot. of the can do statements and specific situations that the testing. organisation ALTE describe We tried to include as many of. these as possible We have also tried to include a range of social. public occupational and educational contexts in terms of all. four skills even at low levels, We have helped students and teachers see these clear objectives. at the beginning of each unit so that students understand. what they should be able to do based on the input and specific. language areas You can also see this in the mapping to the. CEFR here We help students self directed learning with the. Vocabulary Builder the Grammar reference with exercises. and the online workbook which comes with all the student s. books We also help mediation skills through translation. exercises such as the Language Patterns box We encourage. intercultural awareness and the exchange of thoughts and. ideas through many short speaking tasks texts about different. countries and contexts and hearing speakers of different. nationalities,The CEFR and you, It is not only coursebook writers that take the CEFR into. account As a teacher you can also meet CEFR goals by taking. language in the book and giving more examples that make use. of the students immediate knowledge and situation This can. be done by asking questions that encourage students to think. about how they would use language encouraging students. to exchange ideas and feelings and by creating a learning. environment that makes this possible, You might also want to read the CEFR itself and use the Users of. the manual may wish to consider sections it has throughout for. discussions with colleagues or self reflection Visit www coe int. to find out more about the CEFR and download a pdf of the. manual itself, Outcomes Upper Intermediate National Geographic Learning 3.
