The Global Scale of English andThe Common European Framework of ReferenceTThe Global Scale of English is a standardised, granular scale from 10 to 90 which measuresEnglish language proficiency. It is correlated to the Common European Framework ofReference (CEFR). Unlike the CEFR, which describes proficiency in terms of broad levels, theGlobal Scale of English identifies what a learner can do at each point on a more granularscale – and within a CEFR level. The scale is designed to motivate learners by demonstratingincremental progress in their language ability. The Global Scale of English forms thebackbone for Pearson English course material and assessment.CEFR and the Global Scale of English both comprise a number of Can Do statements foreach of the four language skills, describing what learners should be able to do at differentlevels of proficiency. The Global Scale of English Can Do statements have been aligned tothe CEFR and many additional statements created, rated for difficulty and calibrated to thescale.This document provides an overview of the Can Do statements that are covered in eachunit of the course. For each Can Do statement we indicate whether a statement is from theoriginal CEFR or newly-created by Pearson English:(C) Common European Framework descriptor, verbatim, Council of Europe(Ca) Common European Framework descriptor, adapted or edited, Council of Europe(N2000) North (2000) descriptor, verbatim(N2000a) North (2000) descriptor, adapted or edited(P) New Pearson English descriptorEnglish courses and testing aligned to a single scale the Global Scale of EnglishVisit English.com/gse to learn more about the Global Scale of English.Council of Europe (2001) Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning,teaching, assessment.
