The Hellenic American Union is the sole representative of ETS® in Greece and is assisting ETS® with research on the TOEFL® Junior™, a distinct product within the growing TOEFL® family.

In this context, the Hellenic American Union hosted an international workshop with 18 educators from 15 countries:  Brazil, China, Costa Rica, France, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Kuwait, Mexico, Russia, Slovakia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam. The focus of the workshop was to map TOEFL® Junior™ test scores onto the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).  The workshop was designed and facilitated by ETS® research scientists and occurred in Athens, Greece, on March 5-9, 2012.

The results of the research are expected to be announced soon.
