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.
You can 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.
This is one of the best innovative and professional curriculum framework that I have ever read...
An informative and invaluable resource for myself and my language school. Thank you.
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!
HOW CAN A TEACHER LIKE ME ,BENEFITS FROM SUCH CURRICULUM, TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THAT I TEACH IN A RURAL AREA IN A THIRD WORLD + NUMEROUS DIFFICULTIES. WOULD YOU PLEASE SPREAD SUCH KNOWLEDGE FOR FREE VIA INTERNET.
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.
I've heard it's useful but would be interested to know how it's being used - anyone?
very helpful..thank so much..
Thanks a lot for this excellent document.
It’s very clear and illustrative.
