Companies are beginning to recognize just how valuable language skills are for their employees. However, multilingual people don't always know how to illustrate what they are able to do in each language. Whether the language was learned at home, in school, or while living abroad, it is important to properly assess one's language skills and illustrate that proficiency level in a way that is understandable to a broad audience. Avant Assessment provides proficiency-based language assessments that lead to badges which can be shared with institutions of higher education, potential employers, or the general public. And since badges are stackable, the multi-level badges provide an opportunity to create pathways for lifelong language learning. This presentation will illustrate the Avant Proficiency Cycle and how our badges can create opportunities for multilingual students and employees to validate, improve, and celebrate their language skills.
