035.2002 - EUROPEAN LANGUAGE COUNCIL

The Conseil Européen pour les Langues / European Language Council has launched of its own model of the Council of Europe’s European Language Portfolio (ELP), specifically designed for the higher education sector. The ELP, which constitutes a practical application of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages, is designed to promote plurilingualism and dialogue between cultures; facilitate mobility in Europe; strengthen and preserve cultural diversity; foster autonomous learning; encourage lifelong language learning. The ELP can be used for all languages and in any institutional environment. It allows learners to record their language skills and to give prominence to their intercultural experiences - and this in regard to all foreign languages learnt. Thanks to the use of a set of common skill-specific descriptors developed for the Common European Framework of Reference, the ELP provides transparent and internationally comparable information about a learner’s proficiency in any number of languages. The CEL/ELC’s ELP contains a number of additional descriptors specifically developed for higher education, which can provide guidance for the development of innovative language curricula and of other types of language provision. The Portfolio can play an important role in the creation of European lifelong learning area in general and of a European higher education area as envisaged in the Bologna Declaration in particular. Moreover, it can facilitate the development and implementation of coherent institutional language policies in the higher education sector.
For more information please visit the website of the European Language Council (in English, French and German) or the website of the Language Centre of the University of Lausanne (in French). The portfolio inserts are freely available in German and Spanish; however the original, base version of the portfolio in French and English is only available for purchase through the publisher, Schulverlag Plus.

This European Language Portfolio model guides learners at primary level in their language learning process. The aim of working with the ELP is to foster language awareness, to improve learners’ abilities to describe their language proficiency and to enhance their capacity to reflect on their learning and intercultural experiences. The ELP has been developed to foster learner autonomy in language learning, to stimulate an interest in multilingualism and to motivate language learners. The model also comes with a specially developed "Portfolino" for very young learners. By working with the Portfolino, the European Language Portfolio (ELP) for learners attending pre-school or the first year of primary school, children become aware that they are living in a multilingual, multicultural world. The sections on languages in my environment, languages at school and languages outside school enable children to compile their own first language biographies. The documents contained in the Portfolino allow them to discover language competences and to describe language use for the first time. The portfolio and portfolino are available to order from the publisher, Schulverlag Plus.

022.2001 - CZECH REPUBLIC

The European Language Portfolio should become our official European document showing our knowledge of foreign languages. It supports the acquisition of communication skills which are so important for living in Europe. The Portfolio encourages us to collect documents about our communicative competence in various languages, to learn self-assessment according to the synchronised European criteria created by the Council of Europe in the Common European Framework of Languages, to add self-awareness to our learning, and to set successive learning goals. We can make use of it when transferring to another school, looking for a job or when dealing with foreign institutions. Teachers will find it a useful assistant doe explaining and synchronising teaching and learning requirements. It will also help them to assess individual pupils and to keep records of all the tests and work carried out by the pupils during their foreign language learning in one place. In future, Europeans of all ages could have their own language portfolios. The European Language Portfolio by Fraus Publishing House (Czech Republic)

024.2001 - AUSTRIA

The European Language Portfolio (ELP) is a tool created by the Council of Europe for language learners in order to help them to assess and document their knowledge on their own. The Vienna Board of Education, the Vienna Pedagogic Institute and the Association of National Education, together with organisations from neighbouring countries, were involved in creating a European Language Portfolio for the Central-European Region that is intended to cross between regions and levels and point out and document language ability as well as social and cross-cultural experiences of learners in the Centrope Region. Included in this project are primary level (6 to 10 year olds), secondary level I (10 to 15 year olds), secondary level II (16 to 19 year olds) and adult education. The model for learners in upper secondary vocational education was developed during EdQ-Education Quality, a project supported by the European Union, and in cooperation with the Pädagogisches Intitut der Stadt Wien.

091.2007 - AUSTRIA

The European Language Portfolio produced by the Verband Österreichischer Volkshochschulen (Union of Austrian Adult Education Colleges) is the first ELP for adults in Austria to be accredited by the Council of Europe. The portfolio is based on the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), and is an information tool and learning companion which language learners can use to plan, evaluate and document their own individual learning trajectories. The collection of documents in the portfolio can be continually added to and updated.
• The portfolio allows teachers and educational instutions to better understand the needs and motivations of course participants, and to base their lesson planning around these factors. In this way, a tailor-made plan for language acquisition becomes possible - one that takes into account the special requirements (eg work or holiday allowance), interests and pre-existing knowledge of individual course participants.
• The portfolio makes the assessment of learning achievement more objective, and as such it is an important tool for guaranteeing quality of teaching.
• Parts of the portfolio (for instance the presentation dossier) can also be used during job interviews, applications and course admission procedures. • The portfolio makes it possible to match previously acquired qualifications and language certificates/diplomas to the descriptive levels of the CEFR.
