Altissia’s language course platform is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you can study whenever it is convenient. You just need a good internet connection while studying on the platform.
Whether you want to progress in the language of your choice, discover its culture, study the language for everyday life or learn the more specific vocabulary of numerous professions, Altissia can offer you a tailor-made course adapted to your needs, whatever your level on the Common European Scale of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The content has been created by a multidisciplinary, academic team of teachers, linguists, educational specialists and translators and is put online by distance learning experts. The aim is to offer you a learning experience that is fluid, relevant, user-friendly and, above all, pedagogically effective.
Each user is given a personalised learning path according to their level and chosen course. However, you are free to do any modules you find interesting, and you can follow them at your own pace and in the order you prefer. If your access to the platform has been provided as part of a specific programme or through your institution, employer, etc., you may have been pre-assigned a specific learning path. You may also be required to complete specific exercises. Do not hesitate to check the criteria with your training centre.
Altissia’s language courses are based on three learning principles:
Immersion: Language skills are developed and reinforced through intensive immersion in multimedia animations and simulations of real-life situations featuring only native speakers.
Practise: A language is learned by listening, reading, writing and speaking. You will practise all these skills in everyday as well as professional situations.
Spiral learning: Each subject is introduced in a progressive manner, reviewed regularly, and will serve as a reference throughout your learning.
The lessons generally begin with videos based on real situations, so you can learn the most useful words and phrases for understanding the listening comprehension exercises.
You can then memorise vocabulary through a series of interactive cards, improve your pronunciation by listening to recordings of your own speech, improve your grammar skills, and learn the different grammar rules.
Altissia also offers professional vocabulary modules. These courses are based on specific vocabulary used in different professions. The emphasis is on the assimilation and use of key expressions necessary for effective communication in professional contexts.
We hope you enjoy discovering the platform!
