“Thanks to the 22 linguistic varieties offered by the platform, Altissia has allowed me to diversify my language learning as the eternal language learner that I am, as a teacher and as the Director of the School of Languages at UIS. For our students of English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, German, Greek, Russian and Spanish (mother tongue, second or foreign language), it has been useful to discover these languages or to improve the level already acquired. Its configuration is easy to use and allows constant self-assessment. Moreover, with the application that can be downloaded to the smartphones, I can practice the languages from anywhere: on public transport, at home, in the street, at the university, etc.
Knowledge is acquired or reinforced from elementary levels to advanced levels, with the current news part containing real news videos and articles. From the first semester in the subject of Plurilingualism and Interculturalism to the last semesters of the « licenciaturas », in our teaching practices, our students and teachers rely on Altissia for their classes or for improving their level on one or more languages. It has been a great success that the Rector’s Office of the UIS has taken the decision to offer this opportunity to its entire academic community because it has taken it from an official monolingualism to an openness to opportunities, turning its users into plurilingual citizens.“
