ALTISSIA's teaching method is built around an e-learning platform to learn the following 6 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Italian. The lessons cover all levels of fluency, from beginner to advanced learners. Currently, ALTISSIA's platform is available in 9 interface languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese and Polish.

This online platform is combined with other methods of learning ("blended learning") that best fits the needs of each learner: lessons by telephone, video conferencing, motivational interventions, classroom lessons, etc…

Our courses are the result of the experience of a team of professional linguists active for more than 25 years in the academic world as well as in vocational training. Our courses were developed in collaboration with the prestigious Catholic University of Louvain and follow the official European levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
