Executive Summary of Results of a Survey on The Use of the CEFR at National Level in the Council of Europe Member States / Waldemar Martyniuk and José Noijons

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), a document published by the Council of Europe’s Language Policy Division in 2001, the European Year of Languages, is being increasingly consulted and used in a wide number of contexts. A preliminary survey carried out in May 2005 provided a general overview of the use of the CEFR at institutional level.1 The purpose of the present survey, conducted between May and September 2006, was to gather information about the use of the CEFR at national level in as many of the 46 member states of the Council of Europe as possible. One questionnaire was to be filled in for each country. The questionnaire was short and brief answers were encouraged. However, space was provided for comments if there was a need to elaborate on the response. The results of the survey will serve as an input document during the Policy Forum The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the development of language policies: challenges and responsibilities organised by the Language Policy Division, Directorate of School, Out-of-School and Higher Education (DG IV), Council of Europe, in close co-operation with France and the Netherlands (Strasbourg, 6-8 February 2007).
