Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - Level estimation grid for teachers

The CEF-ESTIM Grid helps teachers link their class activities to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It is an "offspring" of the DUTCH CEFR Grid project led by J. Charles Alderson (Lancaster University) which provided an online tool for testers and exam-makers. The CEF-ESTIM Grid addresses a wider perspective, aiming at productive and interactive use of language in the classroom.
The CEF-ESTIM Grid has been designed for teachers seeking some assistance in planning lessons and in implementing the CEFR in teaching. It is a simple tool and caters for sharing experience and ideas with other teachers. It allows for creating archives of class materials, thus making it easier for a team of school teachers to collect a bank of activities linked to the CEFR levels through a qualitative validation procedure.


  • The CEF-ESTIM Grid provides help in estimating the overall level of a course, in planning lessons according to the CEFR levels and for sharing class preparations within a team of teachers.

  • The online version is easy to use and can be saved.
