Paris Seminar

Since the last Seminar (Rome, May 2011), partners have created a data base of existing CEFR-related syllabi for Chinese language teaching in schools (France, Germany, and Italy) and  CEFR-related Chinese language assessment in the UK. In addition, project partners will also tentatively put forward a proposed benchmark framework of competence descriptors for Chinese, with each partner focusing on one skill in the A1 to A2 range.

The purpose of the open session of the Paris Seminar is allow to partners to report on the preliminary results of their research, to reach a common understanding of the proposed benchmark framework for the five skills of the CEFR, and to consult and exchange views with experts of the CEFR and representatives of existing CEFR-related syllabi for the Chinese language from both universities and schools. The seminar will also be a good opportunity to network with colleagues and institutions that share the aims of the project.


Open Session: Afternoon, Friday October 14, 2011

Participants: representatives of the university partners, associated schools and auditors (invited experts on the CEFR and from CEFR-related syllabi for the Chinese language, Chinese language teachers, and representatives of cultural associations where the Chinese language is taught etc.)
