The primary goal of Project ELIAS is to provide a robust language learning environment system that is configured to accommodate any language with considerable ease of use. The project develops beginning, intermediate, and advanced materials for the project languages which include Amharic, Bamanankan, Igbo, Kinyarwanda, Pulaar, Somali, Swahili, Tigrinya, Twi, and Wolof. Lesson materials include vocabulary, monologues and conversations, grammar and student notes, and exercises. Audio and video recordings are also provided for select lessons and sections.

This Project ELIAS Quality Evaluation enables evaluators to submit their assessment of the ELIAS language learning system and its materials. The results of this evaluation are extremely important to Project ELIAS and will be employed in the advancement of the quality and design of the ELIAS website and lesson material. Implementation of these results will be manifested in subsequent enhancements to evaluated components and development of new ELIAS lessons and features.
