Meeting Description: More than fifteen years after the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages was published (2001), which was in fact the year our university hosted the AESLA conference, there are still many questions that we language professionals ask ourselves on a daily basis. In these years, we have witnessed an incredible expansion in the number of methods, suggestions and approaches that, directly or indirectly, originated in a document which has been a real milestone in our profession, the beautiful task of describing, analyzing and teaching a language. If having an adequate training in a language is an essential aspect for human communication, we have also seen how this connects to the introduction of diverse proposals for the accreditation of levels of competence in a foreign language. And, of course, we cannot overlook the importance of the context of use surrounding communication, as a reflection of a changing and multifarious reality. The starting point of our proposal, then, is to stop and think about the crossroads in which we find languages currently, as a result of human beings’ needs for communication and of their interest to show at what stage of training in a language they are.
