Abstract

Abstract A lack of foreign-language and intercultural skills is often the cause of a significant lack of business opportunities. In this context, this paper presents the EU-funded CEFcult Project (2009-2011), which aims to develop an online environment for the assessment of oral language proficiency and intercultural competence against the CEF scales, as well as scales for intercultural competence. Here we present the developments made during the first year of the project, including an outline of the pedagogical choices made concerning frameworks and scenarios, and an evaluation of the pilot schemes for the new assessment tool.
