English Profile is a collaborative programme designed to enhance the learning, teaching and assessment of English worldwide. Its aim is to create a ‘profile’ or set of Reference Level Descriptions for English linked to the Common European Framework (CEF). These will provide detailed information about what learners 'can do' in English at each level, offering a clear benchmark for progress that will inform curricula development as well as the development of courses and test material to support learners, teachers and other professionals involved in the teaching of English as a foreign language.
This site gives the background to the project and shows you how you can take part. By contributing data to our corpus, you can play a crucial role in English Profile research. You can also sign up to our newsletter and receive regular email updates relating to the programme, including information on resources, news and events. We hope you’ll join us.
Happy New Year from English Profile! The first English Profile event for 2013 will be the annual seminar, held in Cambridge. This year Cambridge University Press will host this informal and friendly event, where academics, teachers and assessors involved in English Profile meet to discuss progress and present their findings. We encourage anyone interested in English Profile to attend, and anyone involved in relevant research is also welcome to present their findings. The seminar will be held on the 7th and 8th of February at the Cass centre on Shaftesbury road; for further details, and to sign up for this event or view the programme, click here.
