English Vocabulary Profile

English Vocabulary Profile | Articles re. education | Scoop.it
Welcome to English Profile -- setting industry standards for English language learners. Linked to the Common European Framework for Reference for Languages (CEFR), English Profile will provide a detailed set of Reference Level Descriptions for English language learners.
Alison Rostetter's insight:

The English Vocabulary Profile tells us which words (and which meanings of words), and phrases learners typically know and can use at each level of the CEFR. There are two versions, one in British and one in American English, both searchable within a single CEF level or across levels. In addition, they have audio pronunciation for all entries and are fully searchable by part of speech, grammar, usage, prefix or suffix and topic.
