Languages of publication
The following article reports on an offer of the Council of Europe to his member countries, the Language Education Policy Profile / Profil de politiques linguistiques éducatives (LEPP) and on the realisation of this procedure in Austria. LEPP is a kind of self-evaluation of a country’s language education policy, supported by extern experts nominated by the Council of Europe. In Austria, it was realised between 2006 and 2008. After a brief characteristic of the Council of Europe’s language education policy principles, the three phases of the LEPP are illustrated at the example of Austria: a National Country Report describing the current situation; an Expert’s Report, written after a visit in the country by the experts; and the final product, the Language Education Policy Profile. Finally, measures taken by Austria’s institutions after the end of the process are reported.
