The European Survey on Language Competences: Aims, Outcomes and Conclusions
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ewa Illakowicz.
The ESLC was administered for the first time in 2011. Results were published in June 2012, reporting on the language proficiency of secondary school students by reference to Common European Framework levels. The survey was conducted for the European Commission by a multinational consortium led by Cambridge ESOL . Sixteen countries or administrative regions took part, including England. Five languages were tested: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish; only two of these in each country. Questionnaires administered to students, teachers and principals provided contextual information which was used to explore factors associated with higher levels of achievement. In this talk I will outline the design of the survey and its main findings, and discuss conclusions that might be drawn for European language policy, and also for language teaching.
This talk is part of the Second Language Education Group series.
