Training modules to show how to implement LinguaFolio®

Appendix A: LinguaFolio Documents

All the documents you need to build your own electronic or paper version of LinguaFolio are available on this page. Two formats are available. The PDF versions may be saved, printed, and completed by hand. The Microsoft Word versions are forms and formatted so that you can type in your responses. In order to complete the Word documents, you must download and save the Word files to your computer before filling in information.

In order to provide a complete picture of your language and cultural competencies, it is important that you record information in all three sections of LinguaFolio:
– Language Biography
