Abstract

The new Companion Volume to the CEFR presents three new scales for plurilingual and pluricultural competence. By means of these scales the Companion Volume provides concrete examples for the conceptualization of a multilingual and intercultural education, which was sketched out in the CEFR. In US-American foreign language education, parallel discussions have emerged in recent years and comparable models have been proposed. This article compares the scales for plurilingual and pluricultural competence in the CEFR Companion Volume with two influential North American models. The article makes the case for a more intensive exchange of ideas between North American and European scholars with the goal of developing a more nuanced model of interculturality and multilingualism for foreign language teaching.
