The School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics at Monash has recently adopted the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) to align more closely with current industry and teaching standards.
To find out more about the CEFR at Monash, explore the CEFR in Australia, an international language framework Website. The site, which was launched this week, gives helpful background information about the CEFR itself and what the new competency levels will entail for students and educators.
The CEFR was developed through a process of scientific research and wide consultation, and provides a practical tool for setting clear standards that can be obtained at successive stages of learning. It also provides a framework for evaluating outcomes in an internationally comparable way.
Adoption of the CEFR will ensure that Monash graduates enjoy an education that is both universally relevant and universally transferrable.
