During this period of isolation, when language stays have unfortunately been put on hold, Institut Linguistique alpha.b has arranged virtual lessons for students from anywhere in the world.
Taking a virtual course in a small group of your ability level can allow you to continue to practise the language from home, at times which suit you.
This also gives you the opportunity to stay in contact with other students from all over the world and to enjoy yourself for a couple of hours a day; talking, learning and working just like in a normal class.
For some of you, it may be important to be able to get a certification for your French level.
This is why alpha.b is one of the only schools to be able to offer you a period of 4 weeks of virtual classes with us, at the end of which you can take the Bright Certification FOR FREE which will attest to your ability level.
What is the Bright Certification?
It is a certification which has existed for more than 30 years and which is recognised by French professional training centres as well as those in more than 80 countries. The Bright language tests are certified by the University of Michigan in the United States.
The Bright Certification is valid for two years after it has been obtained.
It is an exam which is 100% accessible on the internet, simple to use and provides a rapid and reliable evaluation of overall language proficiency for written and oral comprehension in a professional context.
How is it examined?
The Bright test exits for 11 languages, one of which is French as a Foreign Language, a test which we are offering for free to students of our online French courses.
This test consists of an online questionnaire made up of two parts (written and oral), each with 60 questions, and a total duration of 45 to 60 minutes.
How does it work?
If you decide to take the Bright test at the end of your 4 weeks of virtual classes with alpha.b, we will cover the fee for the test. It will therefore be 100% free for you!
Your teacher will send you your personalised identification so that you can take the test online and they will supervise you via a control panel.
Once the test is finished, you will immediately have access to your evaluation report, downloadable by PDF. It is also possible to ask for a list of the grammar mistakes that you have made.
The results are recorded on a scale from 0 (beginner) to 5 (bilingual). Bright Language can compare them to language levels required for different positions within your company on request.
