29 March 2013, 17:24 (GMT+04:00)


The Language Policy Unit of the Council of Europe, promoting the
development of multilingual education in the European region, conducted a
comparative analysis of national curriculums at the primary level of
education in the member countries of the Council of Europe in 2012 and in
early 2013.

The analysis aimed to find out how and in what form the mechanisms to
facilitate the development of multilingual education are reflected in the
curriculum at a national level.

According to the Ministry of Education of Georgia, the Language Policy
Unit's report positively evaluated the strategy applied in the national
curriculum of Georgia. This strategy, according to the ministry, divides
language standards not in classes, but levels of knowledge. This approach,
having no analogues in the curricula of other countries of the CoE member
states, provides a good opportunity to really assess the language
proficiency of students in a particular class, provides flexible learning
process and a vertical sequence of language learning.

The report also says that language standards have been set in a common
conceptual framework in Georgia that allows transferring the experience of
studying one language to another.
