This document is the result of a project commissioned by the Council of Europe to produce a system of units in foreign language instruction for European adults. The threshold level of foreign language ability is conceived not only as communicative competence at the survival level, but as the ability to communicate on an interpersonal level, that is, to share to some extent the interests and life style of native speakers. This document provides theoretical and practical information to persons involved in the administration and construction of programs and courses. The material is presented under the following general headings: (1) description of learning goals, (2) inventory of speech acts and specific competencies, and (3) inventory of grammatical structures and vocabulary development.
