The English Profile Programme is establishing the linguistic features of English that correspond to the CEFR and making a contribution to the theoretical developments in language learning, teaching and testing. Annette Capel, chief research editor for the English Vocabulary Profile, and Dr Angeliki Salamoura, University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, will discuss the vocabulary strand of English Profile and its implications for learning, teaching and assessment at the ALTE 4th International Conference in Krakow, Poland, this July.
