What is a European Language Portfolio?
It is a document in which those who are learning or have learned a language - whether at school or outside school - can record and reflect on their language learning and cultural experiences.
The portfolio contains a language passport which its owner regularly updates. A grid is provided where his/her language competences can be described according to common criteria accepted throughout Europe and which can serve as a complement to customary certificates. The document also contains a detailed language biography describing the owner's experiences in each language and which is designed to guide the learner in planning and assessing progress. Finally, there is a dossier where examples of personal work can be kept to illustrate one's language competences.
Visit the Council of Europe website to learn more about the European Language Portfolio.
The EAQUALS-ALTE ePortfolio (e ELP) has been created to act as a tool to help you develop your capacity to reflect on objectives, ways of learning and success in language learning, as well as plan and assume more responsibility for your own learning.
The ePortfolio uses electronic technologies as a container (rather than the folder in the paper-based version) allowing you to store items in many media (scanned documents, audio, video, graphics) - this becomes a digital archive of your work which allows you to develop a portfolio that meets your goals.
