Portfolino: European Language Portfolio

Version for learners aged 4-7

By working with the Portfolino, the European Language Portfolio (ELP) for learners attending pre-school or the first year of primary school, children become aware that they are living in a multilingual, multicultural world. The sections on languages in my environment, languages at school and languages outside school enable children to compile their own first language biographies. The documents contained in the Portfolino allow them to discover language competences and to describe language use for the first time. Quadrilingual version: German, French, Italian, Romansh.

In order to help teachers plan their lessons, the guide gives practical examples of the ELP’s attractive options to assess and guide foreign language learning.
