Introducing the CEFR Companion Volume:
What’s new from a teacher’s point of view?
Hosted by Brian North, this webinar will introduce the recently published CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) Companion Volume with New Descriptors (CEFR/CV). Brian will explain the implications for teaching and learning of the shift towards an ‘action-oriented approach’ embodied in the changes, as well as the concepts of interaction and mediation.
Brian North is a researcher in language education who has collaborated extensively with international organisations, particularly the Council of Europe. He co-authored the CEFR itself, and recently coordinated the 2013–17 project that produced the CEFR Companion Volume with New Descriptors.
