Immigrant Pupils Learn English
A CEFR-Related Empirical Study of L2 Development


David Little, Bronagh Ćatibušić

English Type

International English







Date Published

May 2014

Product description

It presents case studies which illustrate the often uncertain progress of pupils' language development and examines the wide range of variance across the sample. It also provides an analysis of the data as a whole, which reveals a number of regular patterns. The findings confirm that pupils' communicative capacity developed according to the functional trajectory proposed by the guidelines and derived from the CEFR; they also allow us to attach a great deal of linguistic detail to descriptors of underlying linguistic competence.

Key features

  • Provides research findings on the impact of the CEFR in a clear and accessible form.
  • Includes data that supplements findings from the English Profile Programme.
  • Offers an illustration of how language frameworks may evolve under the impact of empirical evidence.
