Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) indicator

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an international standard for describing language ability.  It is used around the world to describe learners’ language skills. 

I created this document to support staff in understanding the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) that the English Department create for students. The indicators help teachers understand what students are capable of in each level.

This document can be used in conjunction with the MYP Language Acquisition Global Proficiency Table Indicator. Roughly speaking:

  • MYP phase 6 is C2 / C1 of CEFR
  • MYP phase 5 is B2 of CEFR
  • MYP phase 4 is B1 of CEFR
  • MYP phase 3 is A2 of CEFR
  • MYP phase 2 is A1 of CEFR
  • MYP phase 1 is Pre A1 of CEFR

I used the following website create the document:
