The aim of this research was to present a possible EFL curriculum design in line with the principles on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). The qualitative data of the research were obtained through the interviews with the experts at TEFL through the semi-structured interview form developed by the researcher. The participants of the research were comprised of academics majored in both TEFL and the CEFR who were selected via purposeful sampling method. In order to analyse the qualitative data of this research, the content and thematic analyses were carried out using QSR Nvivo 8. According to the findings of the research, it was pointed out that the development of four language skills in order for language learners to be able to communicate, the consistency of content for learning and teaching EFL skills with real life situations, the employment of communicative language teaching methods, strategies, and techniques, and the use of alternative testing and assessment should be taken into consideration in the process of designing and developing key components of a CEFR-based EFL curriculum.
