The focus of this paper is twofold: first, on the development of an electronic version of a European Language Portfolio (ELP), known as the LOLIPOP (Language On-line Portfolio Project) ELP, and second on its integration into an undergraduate module on Intercultural Communication in an institute of higher education in Ireland. The paper begins by looking at the European Language Portfolio in the wider context of portfolios in education. It then describes the development and key features of the LOLIPOP ELP, in particular the self-assessment of both linguistic and intercultural elements. It continues by explaining how the LOLIPOP ELP was integrated into the module in question. Finally, the paper presents the output from the participants in this study, focussing on their perceptions of the self-assessment process.
