The goal for all language learners is to develop functional use of another language for one’s personal contexts and purposes. The Can-Do Statements serve two purposes to advance this goal: for programs, the statements provide learning targets for curriculum and unit design, serving as progress indicators; for language learners, the statements provide a way to chart their progress through incremental steps. The ACTFL-NCSSFL Can-Do Statements are the heart of LinguaFolio Online.
