"The LinguaFolio is a document in which those who are learning or have learned a language can record and reflect on their language learning and cultural experiences. It is a tool that should accompany language learning throughout life and is suitable for documenting language abilities for various uses."
Native speakers of languages can use LinguaFolio to document both their progress in learning English as an additional language and their proficiency in their home language or languages.
When teachers and learners work together to document language learning in this manner, language learners, as well as teachers, have a common language to describe what learners are able to do. Once this common language is established and utilized, meaningful articulation of language learning from pre-Kindergarten to post-graduate and beyond can and should result, thereby moving many more students to higher levels of proficiency efficiently and utilizing limited resources wisely.
