The METLA team 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.

The METLA resources also offer a databank with additional sample (cross)linguistic mediation tasks in different languages for different contexts.
