TAFL standards

The TAFL Center follows ACTFL standards in designing its programs and introducing language skills and proficiency. ACTFL standards include five levels: Distinguished, Superior, Advanced, Intermediate, and Novice. The major levels – Advanced, Intermediate, and Novice – are subdivided into High, Mid, and Low.

Based on TAFL tests, students fall into these levels.

4.        Module exercises should be adequate, varied and accompanied by clear instructions. They should feature an easy-to-hard, verbal-to-written and receptive-to-productive order.

5.        The learning process is student-centered through remote learning or self-learning, while instructors are seen as a guide, mentor and facilitator.
