037.2002 - MILESTONE

This multilingual version of the EUROPEAN LANGUAGE PORTFOLIO was designed and developed transnationally by the partners in the MILESTONE project. The Milestone Project, funded by the EU under Comenius 2, is a network of language teachers of migrant learners in language and vocational classes. The Milestone ELP has been piloted in migrant language classes in Finland, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, and Sweden with learners ranging from teenagers to older adults.

This European Language Portfolio is intended to: - Support teaching and learning through the gradual development of learner autonomy - Provide evidence of the holder’s language abilities and intercultural capacities to teachers, officials, and prospective employers - Develop in learners a range of transferable learning, communication and intercultural skills which are essential for effective engagement at all levels with the host society

100.2009 - NORWAY

The European Language Portfolio 6-12 is specially adapted to primary school pupils in Norwegian schools, and can help to ensure that each student learns according to his or her own individual needs. The portfolio is not a textbook, but a tool to assist in language learning. It contains no assessments and is not intended to measure performance. The portfolio belongs completely to the individual student. In order to arouse interest in other languages ​​and cultures, the language portfolio encourages students to evaluate their own work and set new goals. The portfolio is focused on promoting a reflective approach and the development of learning strategies, which are essential for lifelong learning of languages. For the teacher the language portfolio can provide lesson ideas and be a good tool for planning and ongoing assessment, and can also be an encouragement to make classroom teaching more practical. The portfolio may also make it easier to focus on each student's individual needs. More information is available on the website of the Norwegian Centre for Foreign Languages in Education.

097.2008 - NORWAY

The European Language Portfolio is an educational tool that will give students and others who have learned, or are about to learn a foreign language an opportunity to document their language skills and reflect on their own language learning. The language portfolio is used to confirm what the language learner is able to do in different languages ​​and how he or she has acquired this knowledge. Every language in which the learner has acquired any degree of competency is to be mentioned in the file, regardless of whether that language has been learned in school or otherwise. The portfolio is the user's property and it is the user who is responsible for taking care of it and keeping it updated. The European Language Portfolio for learners aged 13-18 consists of four parts: the Language Passport, Language Biography Part 1, Language Biography part 2 and the Language Dossier. More information is available on the website of the Norwegian Centre for Foreign Languages in Education.

The European Language Portfolio for adult migrants, a Norwegian version of the European Language Portfolio (ELP), was developed according to guidelines of the Council of Europe in line with the Common European Framework of References for Languages ​​(CEFR). It is based on known principles of learning and teaching in foreign language and second language, and its goal is to promote and document the acquisition of language skills. As such, the language portfolio has both a monitoring and an educational function. Although this portfolio was developed specifically for use in teaching Norwegian as a second language, each part can also be used by any language teacher or learner.

033.2002 - THE NETHERLANDS

This model of the European Language Portfolio for use in primary schools in the Netherlands has now been superseded by the web-based portfolio model 89.2007 - see the dedicated website www.europeestaalportfolio.nl for more information (in English and Dutch only). For pupils in primary education the European Language Portfolio has the same structure as that for other types of schools. Therefore when a pupil changes to secondary education, by simply changing 'profile' all the information in the portfolio will be transferred. The ELP for primary education is different from that of the other school types. Its design has been made more attractive, with more colours, pictures and easier language. The can-do statements are illustrated by clear examples provided with extra explanations. This is more suitable for the target group. Under language progress, only two levels have been included for the five language skills: A1 and A2. Pupils at a primary school will normally not achieve levels beyond A2. If, in some individual cases, for instance immigrants, this happens the profile for secondary education can be used. The ELP for primary education can be used for foreign language education at all primary schools. It can be especially helpful in cases of intensive foreign language teaching, for example in dual language situations or early foreign language teaching.

This model of the European Language Portfolio for use in secondary schools in the Netherlands has now been superseded by the web-based portfolio model 89.2007 - see the dedicated website www.europeestaalportfolio.nl for more information (in English and Dutch only). The European Language Portfolio for pupils in secondary education has the same structure as that for other education sectors. Therefore when a pupil switches over to higher education, by simply changing the profile all the information in the portfolio is transferred. The ELP for secondary education has examples listed for the can-do statements in the language progress which are relevant for the target group. The ELP for secondary education can be used in language learning for all schools for secondary education. It is best suited to a communicative, action-oriented language teaching, in which the development of language skills plays a central role. The ELP can also be used for more traditional forms of language teaching (focused on grammatical and lexical knowledge). This is because even in this situation the ultimate aim is the acquisition of language skills and a productive use of the target language (presentation, conversation, letter, report, summary etc.).
