      British Council | EAQUALS Core Inventory for General English

      This project may be of interest to anyone involved in curriculum development.

      The downloadable brochure is the work completed on a British Council project to create a core curriculum based, in part, on the CEFR. The British Council and EAQUALS have joined together to create a core curriculum inventory for the English language based around key language points for each level, including grammar, vocabulary, discourse markers and functions. 

      Updated May 2011: you can also download the Core Inventory posters for levels A1-C1 of the CEFR.

      Many thanks for publishing this fantastic and much-needed resource. We have been wondering about the numbering of the Exponents appendix. The numbering is mostly consecutive but there are sudden gaps, suggesting that there's a bigger list of exponents somewhere. Can you explain?

      Thanks for your comment Claire. I asked Susan Sheehan, co-author, and she told me:There isn't a fuller list of language exponents. We started with a longer list of language points but some were found not to be core. We did not write exponents for those language points which were not core.Hope this explains it!Rob

      Is there a pdf version of this document available that isn't pre-formatted for two-up viewing/printing?  While the current formatting works well enough on my HD display at work/home, it doesn't play well on the road when being read on smaller format devices such as an iPad.

      I'm afraid we don't have another version yet. In the not too distant future I hope we'll be able to offer alternative ways to access these publications, so please watch this space.
