Electronic European Language Portfolio
Working with an electronic European Language Portfolio for better language learning

Fostering efficient language learning and effective support through the use of a learner-friendly electronic version of the European Language Portfolio (eELP)



An electronic ELP allows an interactive engagement with multilingual descriptor lists that have been developed and trialled in concrete educational settings. The eELP works as a platform fostering plurilingual and intercultural learning in formal and informal educational settings. It encourages reflection on the principles of the CEFR and the Council of Europe. It also promotes the creation of networks of users in ECML member states as well as the use of new technologies for language and intercultural learning and teaching.
As a platform the eELP offers pedagogical tools for learning, self-assessment and it helps documenting learning outputs and learning outcomes for both individual and group activities. The eELP can play a significant role in consolidating the integration of digital learning with well-established pedagogical approaches to language learning, intercultural learning and learning to learn strategies.
