In recent years there has been a vivid discussion in Japan about language learning curriculums and frameworks, especially the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and the European Language Portfolio (ELP). 

Since forming the Framework and Language Portfolio Special Interest Group (FLP SIG)  in JALT in November 2008 those present sought had gathered interested individuals to garner ideas, discuss developments, and coordinate efforts.

The SIG was renamed to CEFR & LP SIG in November 2017. This Homepage provides information on the CEFR and its use in Japan and beyond. We aim to connect to practitioners in foreign language teaching in Japan, Asia and worldwide.
