Global Scale of English: The Ultimate Compass for Every Learner Journey

Wednesday, April 27th | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM MDT

Research shows us that effective teaching and learning is outcomes-focused. By setting clear goals – and measuring progress towards those goals – we can better understand the impact of what is being taught, even for the youngest of learners.

The Global Scale of English (GSE) was developed to address some limitations of the CEFR and to support teachers in the practical application of goal setting, lesson planning and syllabus design. In this session, we will look at ways in which the GSE supports teachers in their day-to-day work, showcasing the tools and resources that are freely available online.
