Integrating skills in the learning process
In the process of classroom planning, every teacher needs to come up with ideas of activities that help integrate all the skills involved in learning a language. For many years and until recently, classroom work evolved mainly around written comprehension and production activities. The evaluation tasks produced by the Ministério da Educação and GAVE also lacked the introduction of activities connected with the other skills, namely the oral interaction skills.
In that sense, we can say that the appearance of the Common Assessment Framework for the Foreign Languages from within the EU set the standards for the path that language teaching was to follow in every member state. (Leitura integral)
