This paper reports the results obtained by taking advantage of the European Language Portfolio, Moodle, and peer evaluation activities in a listening course with an important presentation component. Previous work by the same writer had shown positive results from the use of these tools in two listening and speaking courses. However, those courses met twice a week, which is unusual in Japan, so the amount of time that could be dedicated to such activities was larger than most teachers have at their disposal. On the other hand, the present article details the steps taken to make it possible to integrate Portfolio, Moodle, and peer evaluation in a course that met only once a week. This was achieved by giving students clear directions for Portfolio use and by developing a simplified evaluation form for peer evaluation. The paper shows that the directions worked and that the simplified form was a viable option. An end-of-term survey demonstrated considerable satisfaction about the course among the students.
