CLB Introductory Resources for the Language Industry Sector
Increasing the knowledge and awareness of Canadian Language Benchmarks/ Niveau de competence linguistique canadiens (CLB/NCLC)
CCLB has received funding from Public Works and Governement Services Canada ( PWGSC) to develop introductory CLB/NCLC resources for ESL/FSL teachers who are not familiar with the Benchmarks as part of the Language Industry intiative component of the Canadian Language Sector Enhancement Program (CLSEP). Main deliverables of this project are: a multimedia Introduction to the CLB/NCLC, twenty CLB Exemplars in English and French and a bilingual lexicon. The project main objective is to set consistency in terms of standards and terminology throughout the Canadian Language Industry through an increased awareness of the CLB as an applicable framework in community, occupational and academic contexts. In these sense, the deliverables will present the target audience with examples, available online, to help them understand what CLB stands for, what learners at different CLB levels look like, and the terminology used in this context. The project will evolve between April 2010 and March 31st, 2011.
