Designing a support system for innovative CEFR-informed language education

The purpose of this new Kaken project “Designing a support system for innovative language education” is to develop a portal site to help all stakeholders who are engaged in innovative language education reforms based on the CEFR. The project aims to accomplish the following through the academic years of 2016 to 2018:


(1) Seek for CEFR related resources and identify information on the philosophy and purposes of the CEFR, syllabus and curriculum design, learners’ assessment, and devices for teacher training.


(2) Edit and arrange the information identified in a user-friendly manner and put them up in a portal site


(3) Operate the portal site and examine its usability.
