A Letter for you

Dear student, This Language Portfolio is your property. It has been designed to help you improve your language learning. It will accompany you throughout your school life and will help you document your learning both inside and outside the classroom. The Language Portfolio contains material which you can use and then keep as a record of your learning. In this portfolio you can also include any extra material given by your teacher, throughout the course. However, the final decision of what to include in the Language Portfolio is completely up to you. In practice, Language Portfolios may include a project or other examples of written work, computer diskettes (with some work or drawings completed inside or outside the class), video cassettes/DVDs, (of your favourite story or of performances of songs, school plays, etc), certificates, reports from your teachers, or even a collection of objects or pictures. Here is a short explanation of each section in your Language Portfolio: I Language Passport This is an updated report of your progress in English language learning. In this section you will include any evidence of your formal qualifications (certificates, diplomas, tests, progress report cards, self-assessment cards, etc). II Language Biography This is an updated record of your personal language learning history which helps you evaluate your learning aims, and reflect on your language learning and inter-cultural experiences. III Dossier This is a collection of the work which you have chosen to illustrate your language skills, experiences and achievements in the English language. In this section of your Language Portfolio there is some material you can use. You can also file any work you do inside or outside the classroom that you would like to keep as evidence of your progress. We hope you really enjoy doing these activities. Virginia Evans - Jenny Dooley
