Also, the CEFR descriptors mainly refer to adults and adolescents; it is less appropriate to use this framework for children or young learners, yet in some European countries the CEFR is used for the children of newly arrived immigrants in primary and secondary education. A final concern is that the level descriptions of the CEFR are not domain-specific. Thus, descriptors, taxonomies, and lists are not exhaustive or specific enough to be used directly for curriculum and test development. This misuse or misinterpretation of the CEFR is even more problematic if we take into account the sometimes serious consequences attached to some of the language courses and tests used.
