The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

Plurilingual education is the one of the main goals of the European Council. This means that it is important for people to know how to communicate in different languages. We can learn a foreign language in our environment, at school or having access to certain resources.

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is a document for language learners where you can find:

  1. The competences speakers need for communication.
  2. The knowledge and skills to be language-competent in different levels.
  3. The situations and domains of communication.
The Language Portfolio is a document where learners can be aware of their own linguistic competence and keep a record of their evolution when learning a foreign language. There are different portfolios depending on the age and academic stage of learners.
In the portfolio, you can write and check how your communication skills are developing when it comes to reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing skills and oral performances.

If you wish to know more about the different levels and skills, you can download the documents in several languages on this url.
