This book explores the mediation strategies deployed by learners when encountering texts written in their first language. The authors of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR; Council of Europe, 2001) recognized mediation, alongside production, reception and interaction, as a key skill area. They did not, however, define formal descriptors for mediation within the CEFR. Cross-language mediation in foreign language teaching and testing addresses this shortcoming.
