The face to face interaction to evaluate the oral Portuguese language proficiency

The Celpe-Bras is the only Exam for Certification in Portuguese Language Proficiency recognized in Brazil. Through one instrument all the four linguistic skills are accessed in this Exam. The oral skills, both receptive and productive, are evaluated from different ways, with the purpose of providing the interviewees with varied opportunities to explore their language-culture knowledge. The aim of this research is to analyze the ways the oral skills of the Celpe-Bras examinees are elicit and evaluated. One sample of the same edition of the Exam was analyzed, taking into account both contexts in which the Exam is applied –, Brazil and other countries. The dynamics of dialogs was the main theoretical basis of the analyses. The results suggest that the oral interviews are impregnated with moments of enunciative symmetry and asymmetry in which the interactants try to keep a complex communicative contract unfold in two dimensions: one related with a formal situation of evaluation and the other related to an informal dialog. The main conclusion of this research is that the context of language learning is closed related with the performance of the examinees in linguistic proficient test. ,Key-words: Portuguese language proficiency exam, face to face interaction, oral skills assessment
