Training teachers to use the ELP

The website contains a wide range of information on how to use the European Language Portfolio. ELP experts involved in ECML activities collected practical materials such as videos, PowerPoint presentations, posters, worksheets as well as links, references and FAQs. Information on developments of European countries is provided as well as materials in national languages. The aim is to promote the pedagogical benefits of the ELP and to facilitate its use in practice. The site also brings together the results of several major European ELP implementation projects on one single platform.

Together with the website developed by the Language Policy Division of the Council of Europe, which focuses on how to develop an ELP and on providing a service for registering new models, the ‘Using the ELP’ site forms part of the Council of Europe portal for the European Language Portfolio.
