    Abstrakti

    The main aim of this presentation is to depict current foreign language assessment in Finland from two perspectives. First, general guidelines from the Finnish National Core Curricula for conducting evaluation are discussed. Second, examples are given how teachers implement evaluation in practice. In addition to that, I am going to provide background on and illustrations of the Finnish Matriculation exam in written exams together with employing the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in oral tests In Finland. The predominant features of language teaching are discussed within recent findings in Communicative Language Teaching (CLT), mainly concentrating in Task-based language teaching (TBLT) as part of the pedagogic teaching–studying/practice–learning process (TSPL) as interpreted by Harjanne and Tella (2007). TBLT presented by Richards & Rodgers (2001), highlights well applicable approaches for foreign language teaching methodology, such as learning by doing, learner-centeredness, and direct focus-on-meaning communication. Derived from my professional experience, I am going to conclude this presentation with discussing routes to improve language teaching and learning.
