Self-assessment grid

To increase the effectiveness of your language learning, it is very important that you are fully aware of your current level of linguistic proficiency (strengths and weaknesses), and that you pursue very specific and feasible learning goals. For this purpose, we strongly recommend that you use the self-assessment grid by dowloading the pdf files posted here for each linguistic competence, listening, reading, conversation, speaking, and writing, and fill them out, according to the instructions included therein. The self-assessment grid is based on both the CEFR (Common European Framework for Languages) and ELP (European Language Portfolio) scales and descriptors. To move from your current CEFR level to the next 90 (A1, A2, B1) to 120 (B2, C1, C2) study hours are required. After registration, your self-assessment will be followed by a placement test which is which is mandatory for everyone who has indicated upon registration any of the CEFR language levels A1 – C2. At the pre-course meeting you will thus be able to discuss and set the learning goals together with the other participants and your course instructor. Completing the self-assessment-grid will enable you to make informed decisions throughout this stage

Alpha Modern Languages Center issues certificates of equivalence on the basis of documents which explicitly state the language and the study period.
