LOLIPOP is a Lingua Action 2 project under the Socrates of the European Commission

What is LOLIPOP?

LOLIPOP is an exciting new tool for language learning.  This multilingual, on-line, interactive version of the European Language Portfolio with an enhanced intercultural dimension is designed to help students in Higher Education to become more autonomous, to reflect on their learning, and to self-assess their language and intercultural skills.

Learners who use LOLIPOP will

  • Be more autonomous in their learning
  • See the process of language learning as a continuous activity that goes beyond the classroom
  • Showcase their language competence even when they have finished formal education
  • Be able to self-assess and reflect on their language skills
  • Have the opportunity to communicate with learners outside of their own environment through the Share function

Teachers who use LOLIPOP with their students will

  • Improve the quality of teaching and learning through eLearning
  • Integrate intercultural learning in their students’ language learning
  • Provide a bridge between the classroom and other forms of learning
  • Have the opportunity to communicate with other users of LOLIPOP throughout the EU
  • Facilitate European integration and mobility by cooperating with other teachers and learners through the Share function
