Au Canada, le Cadre europen pourrait combler un besoin important de dvelopper une base commune de rfrence pour les langues.Le Cadre europen possde plusieurs caractristiques qui conviennent au contexte canadien. Il dcrit clairement des niveaux de comptence langagire qui correspondent aux perceptions des enseignants et des apprenants. Les descripteurs sont clairs, significatifs et formuls de faon positive. Le cadre est ouvert et souple, offrant un systme commun de rfrence qui peut tre utilis dans diffrentes circonstances, un systme qui peut tre modifi et raffin. Les examens internationaux constituent une faon efficace dappliquer le Cadre europen. Les apprenants accordent beaucoup dimportance la reconnaissance internationale de leur comptence en franais.

Language learner autonomyThe freedom that learner autonomy implies is always conditional and constrained: because we are social beings, our independence is always balanced by dependence; our essential condition is one of interdependence (Little 1991)Like the acquisition of language, the development of learner autonomy depends on social
