European Language Portfolio

Language Skills Self-Assessment Grids

The European Language Portfolio (ELP) is a collection of instruments for documenting and assessing a person's language skills in a manner which is consistent and comparable throughout Europe. In addition to permitting its owner to maintain a lifelong record of his or her language learning and practice – both language study and time spent in countries where the target language is spoken –, the European Language Portfolio includes Self-Assessment Grids for evaluating one's own listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and for setting personal learning goals.

The ELP was developed under the auspices of the European Council. For more information, visit the ELP web site:
