O1 European Latin Language Certification - Basic Level: Methodological & Pedagogical Tools

 

The first project Output consists of elaborating a framework for EULALIA certification regarding a basic level of competence in Latin; the framework includes:
- Basic Level Guidelines aimed at defining the certification standards for the basic level, by singling out competences and abilities and specifying possible sub-levels (A1, A2, etc.), designing an analogous of the CEFR model (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) for
Latin. The challenge that EULALIA will have to meet consists precisely of adapting the European protocol to the specific features of a language like Latin: in learning this ancient language, passive competences (reading and understanding texts) are particularly significant, but do not
completely exclude active competences, which play in any case an important role in the learning process. It will be up to EULALIA Latin experts to precisely identify such competences, as well as the most appropriate ways to evaluate them in the European context. For this purpose, the following tools will be provided:
- Basic Level Syllabus: an especially important issue in defining competence levels concerns the knowledge of morphological and syntactic structures of the target language. The Basic Level syllabus will identify how many and which morphological and syntactic structures should be known at the Basic competence levels.
- Basic Level Lexicon: a particularly prominent aspect in defining competence levels is represented by lexical knowledge. In conformity with the CEFR model, EULALIA will define how many and which Latin words should be known at Basic competence levels: this core vocabulary will be made
available on the platform in a multilingual version, and will be accompanied by audio tools, which will be particularly useful to learners with special needs.
Guidelines, Syllabus and Lexicon will be made available on the EULALIA platform in a multilingual version.
