Can-do statements are one of the most useful elements in the CEFR as they are action- and outcome-oriented.

Our can-do statements describe what the participant "can do" at their level. Based on the original CEFR document, Target Training's can-do statements are business specific. There are 7 sets: 

  • Business Correspondence
  • Meetings
  • Negotiating
  • Networking and Socializing
  • Presenting
  • Reading and Producing Business Documentation
  • Telephone Calls and Teleconferences
