Abstract

© 2017, Universidad de Granada. All rights reserved. As one of the working groups belonging to the VOICES of the European Teachers Network (funded with support from the European Commission), Spanish members carried out an online survey of teachers’ experiences, knowledge and perspectives on the European Language Portfolio (ELP). With over 250 respondents in the Barcelona metropolitan area, the answers indicate that while there is a widespread interest, there is also an extensive lack of information concerning this language teaching and learning instrument. This text first describes the ELP’s general traits, provides a brief view into previous studies into the application of the ELP in the Spanish context, followed by an analysis of the responses to the online questionnaire and a discussion of findings.
