Council of Europe

From Teflpedia

The Council of Europe (COE) is a pan-European organisation made up of 47 member countries.[1] One of the COE's major policy areas is that of language[2] and its Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).[3] Its Language Policy Unit is complemented by the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML).[4]

People from outside Europe, and probably even many European citizens, may confuse the Council of Europe with the European Council, which is a meeting held at least twice a year by the the heads of state or government from the 27 member states of the European Union (2013),[5] an organisation which shares "deeper political and economic integration processes".[6]
