This paper examines the theoretical background of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and the European Language Portfolio (ELP) and explains the most important terms connected to these documents. In addition, the study gives an overview of terms and perspectives related to adult language learners and the ways they acquire a foreign language with the emphasis on the age factor, background knowledge, and individual differences such as motivation, learning styles, and learner beliefs. This study investigates the relationship between adult language learners’ proficiency and the A2 CEFR level illustrative descriptors. It provides specific linguistic samples gathered from a group of 15 adult learners of English as a foreign language (EFL) and analyzes them in terms of the CEFR illustrative descriptors for the corresponding language level.
