ECSPM Symposium, Darmstadt, Germany, 26-27 September 2018


This is the title of the 2018 Symposium that the ECSPM is co-organizing with the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany, 26-27 September. Academics, researchers and language education policy advisors from different countries will be addressing an audience of language professionals and students concerned with issues connected to languages and multilingualism. FIPLV will be represented at the Symposium as the Secretary General is a member of the Executive Committee.

On the first day of the Symposium, 26 September, which is dedicated to the European Day of Languages, speakers will talk on various issues and projects on multilingualism across Europe. The second day, 27 September, is devoted to presentations dealing with ideas on how we can best contribute to the efforts for change not only in the way languages are taught and learnt in formal educational settings by resorting to a new language didactics paradigm, but also in the way that future and practicing language teachers are prepared at universities and other professional development centres.

The event is set to take place at university premises, Schnittspahnstraße 9, 64287 Darmstadt, building B2|01 Room: 147. There is no registration fee but those wishing to attend must register in advance because attendance is limited to 100 people.

MAPRYAL launches the first mobile application for Russian language proficiency testing

The International Association of Teachers of Russian Language and Literature (MAPRYAL), one of the longest standing members of FIPLV, has introduced TORFL GO – the first and nowadays exclusive mobile application for preparation to the Russian language proficiency test. This recent innovation has been developed for a wide range of users preparing to pass a test of Russian as a Foreign Language (TORFL/TRKI). The novelty gives them an opportunity to check their command of language, get acquainted with the structure of a TORFL test, learn about  the particularities of its completion procedure, work out tangled cases of language use right from a mobile phone or a tablet PC. At present TORFL GO embraces most required testing levels – Elementary (A1), Basic (A2), First Certification (B1) and Second Certification (B2). The structure and characteristic aspects of each test and the range of subjects accurately reflect the real testing procedure. The application also calculates time limits for task completion. The application has been developed by MAPRYAL with support of Presidential Grand Foundation and is free of charge.

The application is available for download:
