For each assignment, students are given grades out of 20 according to their level. This corresponds to
descriptions of what you can do, as set out in the Common European Framework for Languages (CEF),
as follows:

  A1          A2         B1         B1 +        B2          B2 +        C1        C1 +       C2          C2 +
                         10          11         12          14.5        16         17        18           20

In addition to the specific assignments, students are evaluated on their interlanguage, as demonstrated
in class, their general professionalism and their personal investment in the learning process, i.e. whether
or not you have reached your objectives for the semester. These objectives will be different for each
group: depending on your original level, your objective could be to progress from one Common European
Framework level to another, or to maintain your current level of English (for higher level students).

Above all, it is important to note that, at CPE, English classes are considered as ‘Practicals’ (TP),
because we feel strongly that you need to be active and use a language, in order to make progress. You
must therefore, of course, attend all classes, in order to have the opportunity to use your English. If you
do not, the module will be considered ‘incomplete’ and not validated.

Students need an average of 10/20 in order to validate their English module. Where you have not got a
total of 10/20, ‘catch up’ work/assignments will be given at the end of the semester in order to be able to
go on to the next semester.
