SWEDLEX FOR YOU




As a result of over twenty years of research, the Council of Europe published the ‘Common European Framework of Reference for Languages’ in 2001. The CEFR was created to provide a comprehensive basis for designing language courses and for writing teaching and learning materials for all languages in Europe. Very soon it became accepted as the new standard for language testing all over the continent and beyond.

SWEDLEX adopted the CEFR as the foundation for their new exams and designed all their tests around the well-known “can-do” statements of the Framework. 

The CEFR is now used in Europe and other continents too, and is available in 39 languages.

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF or CEFR) was put together by the Council of Europe as a way of standardising the levels of language exams in different regions. It is very widely used internationally and all important exams are mapped to the CEFR.
