“The Directorate-General for Education (DGE) of the Ministry of Education (ME), will promote the 3rd edition of the workshop entitled “Relating language curricula, tests and examinations to the Common European Framework of Reference (RELANG) – Exploring ways to test mediation and pluricultural/plurilingual skills in the classroom”.

In this workshop, participants will focus on the new mediation and pluricultural/plurilingual skills of the recently published Companion Volume, a complementary document to the European Framework of Reference for Languages. Accordingly, participants will be asked to analyse to what extent the [Portuguese] foreign language curricula are aligned with these skills. Classroom mediation activities will be explored as well as assessment.

This workshop has been successfully promoted in different EU Member States since 2013. For the third time, Portugal, represented by the Directorate-General for Education/Ministry of Education, will be one of the European countries which have accepted the challenge to carry out this initiative led by ECML foreign language assessment experts.

This is an important initiative for primary and secondary education at national level, where the participants will deepen and, in the short term, multiply their knowledge of the principles of foreign language assessment, which must be valid, reliable and aligned with the European language model. The current edition will include French, English, German and Spanish as a Foreign Language teachers, teacher trainers, test developers and curriculum developers.”
