European Language Portfolio (ELP)
The European Language Portfolio (ELP) was developed by the Language Policy Unit of the Council of Europe
- to support the development of learner autonomy, plurilingualism and intercultural awareness and competence;
- to allow users to record their language learning achievements and their experience of learning and using languages.

Follow this link if you wish to know more about the concept and history of the ELP, download components, or create an ELP of your own, but also to consult the full list of accredited or registered ELP models.
In this part of the website you will find:
- documents on the ELP’s origin, guiding principles and history
- reports on the ELP project at European level
- reports on international seminars held under the aegis of the Council of Europe
- lists of ELPs accredited (2000-2010) and registered (2011-2014) by the Council of Europe
- a guide to compiling an ELP model
- templates and other resources that can be used when compiling an ELP
- some key publications on designing and using an ELP
In view of the large number and wide range of validated and registered models now available, the Council of Europe stopped registering ELPs at the end of 2014.
