Welcome to CEFcult!
An enjoyable learning environment for assessing your intercultural communicative competence!
As employees increasingly work in international, multi-cultural settings, success in intercultural professional communication requires not only language skills, but also the ability to understand and deal with cultural and linguistic diversity. CEFcult aims to increase the language and intercultural skills of the (future) labour force in Europe.
The CEFcult platform should be viewed as a vehicle in which assessees and assessors can apply their interests, critical thinking, and creative ideas to self-selected areas of interest. It is a safe environment for learning helping language learners refine and improve their speech performance and communicative skills.
Learners are able to record themselves and make annotations, to peer review their assessments in social networks. The learner is in charge, but experts can be called in to feed the assessment from a professional perspective. As such, a résumé of a student online might be validated by means of a peer and an expert review, with a recording, imported from CEFcult.
"By means of this project, the transition from intercultural awareness to intercultural competence is very likely to be achieved."
