The publication entitled Introducing the European Language Portfolio into Croatian and French Language Classrooms – From language Use to Language Awareness results from the project “Developing pupils’ independence by means of the European Language Portfolio (ELP)” (2007-2010).

This volume shows the path of young learners toward learner autonomy and the role of the ELP to achieve this aim. The articles are structured around several thematic fields such as learner autonomy from different perspectives, as well as the role and the function of teachers and parents.

The authors underline that the use of the ELP goes beyond the classroom, identify obstacles that need to be overcome of the ELP to be introduced in Croatian and foreign language classrooms, present opportunities that favour the use of the ELP, compare the self-assessment results of pupils, consider the development of awareness in young learners, discuss the development of intercultural awareness, reflect on the role that parents play in the ELP context, explore the role and the function of teachers in the use of the ELP, highlights character traits, attitudes and experiences of teachers who participated in the project, describe some practical examples of classroom activities and, last but not least, present the results of research conducted with FL teachers during their initial training that used the European Portfolio for Student Teachers of Languages (EPOSTL).
The accompanying DVD provides examples of good classroom practice.
