This research aimed at examining the applicability and effectiveness of oral production portfolio in a class of FLE in Iran. Specifically, the components of oral competence, namely, the degree of development of grammar, pronunciation and intonation, fluency of speech, discursive competence and interaction among learners were analyzed.
After determining the theoretical framework of the subject and synthesizing it, the results of the field study were presented. The corpus was comprised of 11 adult learners of French at level B1. According to this survey, learners made progress, by means of this approach, in all of identified items of oral production and developed the ability of self- assessment.
