Learn Italian in Italy
official exam centre: CILS - DITALS - CELI - CIC
Individual courses in 50 cities throughout Italy
In contrast to the preparatory courses directly at University and other schools, our courses are small-sized and targeted at the specific needs of foreigners learning Italian in an effective way.
All foreign citizens, Italian citizens residing abroad (descendants
of Italian emigrants) and foreign immigrants in Italy may request to take the
CILS exam. There are no age limits and applicants are not obliged to possess educational
certificates or degrees, nor is it necessary to have obtained lower levels of
the CILS in order to attempt the attainment of a higher level. The CILS exams
are not bound to the study of specific methods or forms of Italian language courses.
Each candidate can prepare for the CILS exams in the ways deemed most appropriate
and suitable in accordance with the demands of the level.
CILS levels. The CILS covers six levels: Level A1, Level A2, Level ONE-B1, Level TWO-B2, Level THREE-C1 and Level FOUR-C2. Each of these represents a progressively higher level of linguistic and communicative ability.
The CILS levels correspond to the following course levels at Pasolini Language Schools:
In addition to our standard courses, you will need to take between 10-40 private or mini-group lessons at our school, designed for your specific needs.
Each CILS level is autonomous and complete: the certification
for each level represents a degree of communicative ability which is adequate
for specific social, professional and scholastic contexts.
All exams are produced and evaluated by the Certification Centre of the University of Siena for Foreigners on the basis of European standards set by the Council of Europe. Candidates must obtain at least the minimum score in each section to be awarded the CILS. If a candidate obtains the minimum score in only some sections, then the candidate may take subsequent exams in those sections in which he or she had not obtained the minimum score. The sections of the exam that have been passed are valid for one year from the date of the first exam.
Outside of Italy, the exam may be taken at Italian Institutes of Culture as well as at other selected venues. In Italy, the exam takes place at the University of Siena for Foreigners and in other selected sites (at the Centri Territoriali di Educazione Permanente in Tuscany and in other regions, at the Language Centres of certain universities, etc.). The CILS exams are scheduled twice a year, at the beginning of June and December, on the same day for all test sites.
A fee is charged for sitting the exam.
