Straightforward Second Edition has strong and clear links to the Common European Framework.
Each unit culminates in a self-assessment box so students can check and monitor their own progress and become more independent learners. The checklist is a selection of clear ‘can-do’ statements.
Each level of Straightforward Second Edition comes with a Portfolio for students to make a note of what they have successfully learnt. This not only keeps a record of their progression but also acts as a motivator for the students to be engaged and autonomous learners.
You can use the CEF checklists provided on this site to help your students monitor their progression.
