Working on your language profile will help you reflect on your language learning experiences and your current language learner self now, and after general upper secondary. This site offers ideas and examples for compiling your personal language profile.
What is the language profile?
All students compile a Language profile as part of their general upper secondary school studies. Its purpose is to support your growth as a language learner and language user.
This site will guide you to reflect on:
what your language skills consist of
what your linguistic and cultural identity consists of
what we mean by language skills and interaction skills
how languages can be learned
how various language skills can be made use of after general upper secondary school.
You will explore these themes from different perspectives by reflecting on diverse tasks and related materials. Your reflections will function as the core of your Language profile. Tasks can be completed independently, in pairs, or in groups.
Creating your language profile
Decide together with your teacher where you will create your language profile. Suitable platforms include, for example, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft 365, as well as blogs and social media platforms.
You can personalize your language profile according to your own preferences. Add attachments, images, videos, and audio files to demonstrate your language skills.
