Mediation in teaching, learning and assessment

The METLA project proposes innovative and engaging ways in which teachers can include language mediation in their everyday classroom practice. Here you will find essential information about language mediation, plenty of examples of cross-linguistic mediation tasks and step-by-step guidelines on how you can design and evaluate your own language mediation tasks.

The Teaching Guide

The METLA project has developed a Teaching Guide for foreign language teachers of primary and secondary education who want to include (cross)linguistic mediation in their teaching practices. It contains information about the theory and practice of language teaching, learning and assessing in relation to mediation together with examples of mediation tasks in different languages. Such examples draw on the new Companion Volume of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR-CV). This Guide also provides tips and suggestions for teachers on how they can design their own mediation tasks.
