This project aims at developing language learning word cards with the most frequent words corresponding to the European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is being developed for nine languages important for trade and associated countries, both LWUTL (Swedish, Norwegian, Greek, Polish) and MWUTL (Arabic, English, Chinese, Russian and Italian), as complementary learning material.

The most frequent words will be developed in cooperation with lexical computational centres in each language's country. The project refines existing frequency lists and adapt them to the Framework. The project allocates words to both the Framework's 6 levels and to KELLY thematic classification in 15 subject categories (Food & Drink, Nature & Animals, etc). Visualized schematically in KELLY Syllabus, it allows teachers to deal with words systematically. Corresponding to all 6 Framework levels, the project ensures target group flexibility. Young and adults, beginners to advanced alike, can easily set clear aims, plan studies accordingly and control their progress.
