  • What exactly is LinguaFolio? Read slide. In other words, LinguaFolio is a tool for those who are learning or have learned a language at school or outside of school where they can record and reflect on their language learning and cultural experiences. It accompanies language learners throughout life and is suitable for documenting language competencies for a wide variety of uses.
  • Like the European Language Portfolio on which it is based, LinguaFolio belongs to the learner rather than to the institution, and is divided into three sections. The Language Biography , a record of personal language learning history that helps to evaluate learning goals and reflect on language learning and cultural experiences. The Language Dossier , a collection of pieces of work and certificates chosen by the individual to document and illustrate language skills, experiences, and achievements that can be used to demonstrate language abilities to others. The Language Passport , a formal record, including: certificates or diplomas, self-assessments and a summary of experiences and ability with different languages that can be updated frequently. The Passport is an official document that can be shown when students transfer from school to school, level to level, teacher to teacher or to prospective employers for professional purposes.
  • The goals of the European Language Portfolio clearly parallel goals here in the United States. Having recognized the value of the goals for the ELP, members of the National Council of State Supervisors for Languages, otherwise known as NCSSFL, have developed their own goals for unifying the philosophy of language learning in the United States. Multilingualism vs. plurilingualism: Multilingualism – implies proficiency in several languages Plurilingualism – implies that one would use different languages at varying levels of proficiency for specific purposes (receptionist at hotel does not need to analyze literature)

  • Based on the pilot programs in the states that we have presented thus far, we have seen that in the United States learners of any world language, including English, can benefit from using LinguaFolio. Will you consider offering this tool to your students?
