Welcome to Racial Equity Tools. English Profile - English Grammar Profile. The English Grammar Profile allows us to see how learners develop competence in grammatical form and meaning, as well as pragmatic appropriateness, as they move up the CEFR levels.

English Profile - English Grammar Profile

This provides us with typical, world-wide grammar profiles for each level. Like vocabulary, grammatical forms often have more than one meaning. For example, the modal verb 'may' can be used with various meanings at different levels. The EGP teases apart these meanings, and tells us at which level we see learners of English using them correctly and appropriately - here's a sample of the results for 'may': Weak possibility: "The weather may be hot. " Formal permission: "May I borrow your bike? " 'May well': "You may well find that this is not the case. " 'May as well': "We may as well go home. " Watch Mike McCarthy's introduction to the EGP below, originally featured on Cambridge English Teacher: English Profile - English Vocabulary Profile.

The English Vocabulary Profile offers reliable information about which words (and importantly, which meanings of those words) and phrases are known and used by learners at each level of the Common European Framework (CEF).

In 1923 The Library Association commissioned the calligraphers Edward Johnston and H Lawrence Christie to design a roll of honour commemorating the British librarians who fell in the Great War. Johnston, a renowned calligrapher best-known for designing an alphabet used on London Underground signs until 1980, was familiar with the British Museum Library having studied its manuscript collections as a young man. Christie was one of the co-founders of the Society of Scribes & Illuminators and had already designed other memorials to the 1914-1918 war, including the bronze panel in the House of Commons commemorating the five Committee Clerks who were killed in action. Letter from H Lawrence Christie to W R B Prideaux, Secretary of the Library Association, showing the 1923 design for the roll of honour.
