Through this project, ELP-related materials have been produced in ten languages, teacher development and dissemination events have been organised in all project countries, and the EAQUALS-ALTE ELP has been translated into 3 more languages. A new edition (including 14 languages) is being prepared, for launch at the final project conference in September 2007.
