    • Language learners to identify and set learning goals and chart their progress towards language and intercultural proficiency;
    • Educators to write communication learning targets for curriculum, unit and lesson plans;
    • Stakeholders to clarify how well learners at different stages can communicate.

    The statements are organized according to the Interpretive, Interpersonal, and Presentational Modes of Communication as described in the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages:

    • Interpretive Communication:  Learners understand, interpret, and analyze what is heard, read, or viewed on a variety of topics.
    • Interpersonal Communication:  Learners interact and negotiate meaning in spoken, signed, or written conversations to share information, reactions, feelings, and opinions.
    • Presentational Communication:  Learners present information, concepts, and ideas to inform, explain, persuade, and narrate on a variety of topics using appropriate media and adapting to various audiences of listeners, readers, or viewers.
