INNOVATIONS AND CHALLENGES
• In 2012 Uzbekistan accepted the CEFR (Common European
Framework Reference) as a nation-wide educational standard of
reference for learning, teaching and assessment of foreign
languages. English being the key language in economy, society,
education, and industry, the Ministry of Higher and Secondary
Education of Uzbekistan has undertaken an initiative to align ESL
programs nationwide according to the CEFR levels of language
proficiency:
• A1 - Elementary Schools, General English, Part I
• A2 - Secondary Education, General English, Part II
• B1 - Vocational Schools and High Schools, English for Specific
Purposes, including language programs
• B2 - Higher Education non-language programs and High School
language programs
• C1 - Language programs, Masters, Doctorate
INNOVATIONS AND CHALLENGES
Together with the international experts from Great Britain
a new teaching plan for the next teachers’ generation was
elaborated based on PRESETT Project.
As a result, the first year students of 17 HEIs switched
over to completely new programmes, compiled with due
regard for all-European international standards known as
CEFR.
The programmes included 21 new subjects (modules).
On completion of the HEI the graduates are expected to
