Everyone can claim that they are a proficient English language user but how do you know for sure where your child’s language ability stand against the rest of the world?
In other words, how do we know we’re proficient if we don’t know what proficiency is?
Benchmarking against CEFR helps to standardise the qualitative aspects of language usage against international standards so you know that your child will receive the best education right from the start!
How do we do it?
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is commonly used internationally as a guideline to describe student’s language proficiency and their learning outcomes. The framework of reference informs the abilities language learners should master at six different proficiency levels from A1 (beginners) to C2 (proficient learners). Currently, our modules consist of 4 global levels from A1 (beginners) to B2 (independent) that correspond to the CEFR scale.
At Q-dees, we offer the following programmes:
How can your child benefit from it?
This framework of reference has also been adapted into the Primary School Standard Curriculum (KSSR) as of this year and they are looking into using CEFR aligned textbooks in local public schools. In addition, CEFR is also used by Cambridge as a benchmark for their examinations.
Thus, enrolling your child in a CEFR aligned English programme opens the pathway for your child to meet the global demands of international language standards.
Understanding Q-dees Global Levels – CEFR Scale
Our Global Level 1 (GL1) corresponds with level A1 from the CEFR scale. At GL1, we ensure that your child’s basics are set in place. We make sure that they learn to read effectively and accurately by first building their fundamentals through learning phonics the fun and engaging way. Soon, your child will be able to read fluently with native-like pronunciation!
That’s not all! At the end of GL1, your child will be able to read, write and speak with minimal assistance while mastering everyday expressions.
Here is an example of our module that teaches children to speak eloquently and confidently whilst developing a love for reading.
Upon successfully completing GL1 in preschool, your child will then move to GL2, GL3 and GL4 according to our Scholars International English module. During these years, they will be able to comprehend most reading materials as well as be able to communicate spontaneously using daily expressions.
If your child do not have any background in Q-dees Starters, they will go through a placement process in order to get them on the right entry level when they enrol in Q-dees Scholars. We offer different modules at various levels of proficiency to suit the needs and abilities of each learner. Q-dees Scholars international English programme provides modules from Global Level 1 all the way to Global Level 4.
