The variety of the answers to the question of why one should learn a foreign language increases the number of people who learn a foreign language. As the number of the people learning foreign language increases, more and more studies have also been done in the field. Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) has been published as a reference source by European Council first in 2001 in the result of long years of study in the field. CEFR offers a comprehensive framework addressing every known subject in the field of teaching, learning and evaluating a foreign language and it makes foreign language education with internationally defined limits and standards possible. Common European Framework of Reference for Languages was extended and re-published in 2018. In this study where document analysis method is used, the focus is on the creative writing skills. The extended version of CEFR is the main ground and there is a comparison made between the current text and the first text. Regarding this, the similarities, differences, added and updated sections between both texts have been identified and explained in detail. As a result, it has been found that the updated text has been extended with additional description, detailed explanations of the scope of the title and new descriptors for language levels. It has been observed that the updated text (2018) in which the current achievements have been preserved and developed is more functional and provides a more open, understandable, comprehensive and concrete framework for both language learners and teachers. There have been made suggestions from the research data.
