Development l.jpg

The European Language Portfolio (ELP), devised by the Council of Europe's Modern Languages Division and piloted in 15 Council of Europe member states between 1998 and 2000, has been launched throughout Europe during 2001, the European Year of Languages.

What is the purpose of the European Language Portfolio (ELP)?

The ELP is designed to:

  • encourage the lifelong learning of languages, to any level of proficiency;

  • make the learning process more transparent and to develop the learner's ability to assess his/her own competence;

  • facilitate mobility within Europe by providing a clear profile of the owner's language skills;

  • contribute to mutual understanding within Europe by promoting plurilingualism (the ability to communicate in two or more languages) and intercultural learning.

  • B Independent Speaker

    B1 Threshold

    B2 Vantage
