English and/or other language ?

 Hi,

I am about to take the CAPM exam.

I wanted to take it in ENGLISH + Language Aid : FRENCH but it seems that it has been booked with FRENCH as primary language.

Now I wonder if questions will also be available in english, since I've studied with an english version of PMBoK ?

Does anyone knows and can confirm that english is ALWAYS available or if I should reschedule my exam ?

 

Thanks for advice.

 As per p20 of hand book :

All PMI examinations are administered in English. However, language aids for the questions and answers of the PMP and CAPM examinations are available to assist you if English is your second language.

Language aids are available in the following 12 languages:

Arabic
Brazilian Portuguese
Chinese (Simplified)
Chinese (Traditional)
French
German
Hebrew
Italian
Japanese
Korean
Russian
Spanish

As I understand, language aids are online instructions /translations in one of the 12 languages listed above.

Answers means  : if you asks or during tutorial (it is not certainly test answers) 

------------------------------------------------

conclusion is that if filled up form in French, you will get test in English but aids in French.

 Thanks.

I got this answer from Prometric which states the opposite, so now I don't know what to think 

 

Dear Candidate,

 

Thank you for your email. 

 

Please be informed that as per our records, your CAPM examination is scheduled under FRENCH language.

 

In order to get the language change from French to English, you are supposed to cancel the previous appointment and re-register the same with the language of your choice.

 

In order to get the information on Language Aid, you are humbly requested to please contact the PMI directly.

 

For further assistance, you  may contact at our Candidate Care Deparmtment at +0800-807790 or +31-320-23-9899 on Monday-Friday 8:00-18:00 GMT +01:00.

 

 

I wonder the exact same question... Does anybody know what "will get test in English but aids in French" means? Is there a translation of the questions and answers on the screen during exam? Does the test center provide a paper dictionnary for the test?


In my case, I am learning the PMBOK in English + the French  PMBOK in support when I am confused (so, I have the two books with me all the time) but the glossary, acronyms of formulae are completly differents, which is very confusing... Despite all this, when I take moke test, I cannot reach 80% because the most of wrong answers are due to misunderstanding in English... so much frustating
