Common European Framework Reference level of English proficiency update! Finally!

5 years ago

Interesting video: There has been a recent update to the Common European Framework Reference level of English proficiency; the change is made to reflect the recent consensus experts has reached on what makes a fluent speaker. 

I am so happy that they decided to change it!

I am in absolute and total agreement with the youtube video maker. I have said it before and I will say it again to students. "you do not automatically need a native born English teacher" you need a good English teacher. The problems students face is their inability to know who is a good English teacher and who isn't. And I will say this again to students. "accents are not important" what is important is TO SPEAK CLEARLY. Everybody has an accent or dialect "by accident of birth".

What do you think?
