Who is it for?
These are the results from a project of the European Centre for Modern Languages within its "Empowering Language Professionals" programme 2008-2011.
This website results from a project run within the ECML's (European Centre for Modern Languages) Empowering Language Professionals programme entitled "Assessment of young learner literacy linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages".
The CEFR is increasingly drawn on as the basis for both teaching and assessing languages in schools – reflected in curricula and number of ELPs produced for young learners (see Council of Europe web and Hasselgreen 2005b).
The project will have the opportunity to study the language of young learners, who may be at different institutional stages of schooling, and have varying lengths of study time in the target languages.
The Ayllit publication and website result from the work of an international network established within one of the ECML projects. We would like to thank all who worked on Ayllit, in particular the project coordination team for their motivation and active involvement.
