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

The 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.

You can download this publication as a PDF file or buy a hard copy from the Bournemouth English Book Centre.



Thanks a lot for this excellent document. It’s very clear and illustrative. Mercedes

My name is Prasant Dubey from India I am a teacher of english language the things which has been done by our lovely council now,It should have done quite earlier.

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.
