Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters
The Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters is a tool designed to encourage people to think about and learn from intercultural encounters that have made a strong impression or had a long-lasting effect on them. In discovering what underlies these encounters users become more aware of their experience and their reactions, thereby developing their intercultural competences.
Common European Framewok of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
The CEFR: Learning, Teaching, Assessment is a document which describes in a comprehensive manner i) the competences necessary for communication, ii) the related knowledge and skills and iii) the situations and domains of communication. This document provides a practical tool for setting clear standards to be attained at successive stages of learning and for evaluating outcomes in an internationally comparable manner and it provides a basis for the mutual recognition of language qualifications, thus facilitating educational and occupational mobility. It is increasingly used in the reform of national curricula and by international consortia for the comparison of language certificates.
