The descriptors are divided into 4 main domains: Online Language Competences (please note that this is not intended as descriptors for general language learning levels); Social Competences; Technical Competences and Cross-Cultural Competences. These domains are subsequently divided into 3 ‘macro’ KSAs (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes) which are then divided into ‘micro’ KSAs. The breakdown of the ‘macro’ KSAs are designed to facilitate pinpointing specific actions that can be taken for development and assessment of the competences.
These descriptors can be used for setting goals, for linking goals to evidence and reflection and for evaluation. To see suggestions on how to use these descriptors, see 'Combining the Resources'.
The descriptors are attached below as a PDF to maintain their visual structure.
