For JALT CEFR & LP SIG (from 2009 to 2017 FLP SIG) publications were important to spread the word. Disseminate the research results and fostering a profound reflection on the teaching practices is vital to professional development not only in Japan but world wide. The CEFR and CEFR/CV are very helpful tools in doing so.


There are mainly three types of publications:


  • SIG Newsletters (click here - shows the Newsletters site in a new window) 


  • CEFR Journal - Research and Practice on the CEFR and CEFR/CV (click here - connects to a new window)


  • Book publications emerging as outcome of SIG related collaborative research and Kaken research projects (click here - connects to a page describing the book contents in a new window)

Whereas the newsletter reflects our work inside JALT and shows how language teaching in Japan is proceeding in exchange with our colleagues from JALT and beyond, the books are offering a more data-driven approach to the description of the CEFR and the CEFR/CV, with a focus on Japan but not only. The new CEFR Journal gives a double blind peer-reviewed overview of different aspects on research and practice about the CEFR and the CEFR/CV in Japan and beyond, but also worldwide.
