The English Profile Studies series

The English Profile Studies series publishes volumes which explore aspects of the CEFR, English language learning and teaching, and any research which contributes to our understanding of the way learners progress through the six levels of the CEFR. This includes specific case-studies as well as more general explorations of the CEFR, its use/impact, and ways of building on the Framework. The series also presents findings from English Profile research and other related projects, and is designed to be of interest to a wide range of users including teachers, curriculum designers and educational policy-makers, as well as language test developers, academic lecturers and researchers.

The series is jointly produced by Cambridge English Language Assessment and Cambridge University Press

Criterial features in L2 English

Language Functions Revisited

The second volume in the series, Language Functions Revisited (Green, A.) introduces the theoretical and empirical bases for defining English language learning levels in functional ‘Can Do’ terms.
