KELLY: Keywords for Language Learning for Young and Adults alike

Start Date: 01/11/2009
End Date: 31/10/2011
Funding: ICT (FP7) - Lifelong Learning Programme
Project Leader: Gavrilidou Maria

This project aims at developing language learning word cards with a language’s most frequent words corresponding to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It will be developed for nine languages (Swedish, Norwegian, Greek, Polish, Arabic, English, Chinese, Russian and Italian) as a complementary learning material for the development of the learners’ lexical competence.

The most frequent words of the abovementioned nine languages will be developed in cooperation with lexical computational centers in each language’s country. The project will refine existing frequency lists and adapt them to the Framework.

The project will be evaluated while in use by students in upper secondary schools and adult education. Results will be promoted on a webpage, in media and at conference/seminars.
