Europass Language Passport

In the Europass Language Passport you can describe your language skills using a six-step scale of skills levels. These levels are in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and it is used all across Europe.

With the help of the Language Passport you can give a comprehensive and detailed description of your language proficiency: you can describe your skills separately in speaking, writing and comprehension of a language.


For the Language Passport it is not relevant where and how you have obtained your language proficiency: what matters is, is your personal skills level. You can, at will, also include information on formal language studies or language exams into your Language Passport.


The Language Passport also helps you to analyse your language skills, set goals for your learning and follow your own progress.
