Our News:

Technical vocabulary is the principal characteristic of specialised language but, frequently, we come up against the difficulty of situating this vocabulary within the different levels of the CEFR for the creation and assessment of LSP tests. Therefore, in this SIG we propose initiating the creation of a standard business glossary for additional languages that permits us to create and better assess this type of test.
