It's been noted that the instructions here are a little unclear - you have to register on a DWAN machine, but you can access the system from the internet.
The link for ALLIES WEB on the internet is: http://www.allies.forces.gc.ca/registration/index-eng.asp

I've been using ALLIES Web for a while now. It's helped with learning the kind of workplace vocabulary and phrases that I won't learn at home. It's good if you can stick to it. I particularly like the audio functions that allow you to talk back and compare your pronunciation to the recordings. Also the "militarized" clip art and 20-year-old videos are amusing.

I registered for this too.
Something i was a little unclear on, do i get a language qualification on my docs? or is it just for practice?
Either way i'm sure it will fill the gaps on what i've forgotten.

Speaking under NO authority whatsoiever, I'll say that if it's not automatically put on your docs then it'll bve treated as any sort language you may know already. The language school would probably need to test you to see your degree of fluency with said language before putting it on yoru docs.

This is my best guesstimate since this was the route that had to be taken to become acknowledged that I know the language of my childhood.

Simply take the public service test like we've always done. If you picked up French on this new system and pass the test, your anguage profile will appear on your MPRR. There is no need to be tested by the language school  IOT get a language profile.
