Canadian Language Benchmarks ‘Can Do’ Statements – CLB 7


The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks has issued a document containing Can Do Statements. These statements are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). They describe what learners can do at benchmarks 1 to 12 in the skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. The purpose of these statements is to present some of the information in the CLB document in language that is accessible to learners. The statements can help to facilitate discussions [with] learners about what they have accomplished and what they still need to develop.”
