ITALIAN LANGUAGE COURSES FOR ADULTS


The Italian language courses of the school follow the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), a descriptive system used to evaluate the skills obtained by those who study a European foreign language. The six levels of competence (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) are used throughout Europe and other continents as parameters to provide language teachers with a reference model for the preparation of teaching materials and for the evaluation of language skills. Our courses are organized as follows:

Textbooks

The material (book + cd + DVD) is provided by the school which is the same used in many Italian universities for foreigners, in which stimulating and varied contents and situations of daily life have been presented. The teaching units cover high frequency communication situations in which the student undoubtedly will find himself during a possible stay in Italy or during a conversation with Italians. Furthermore, additional support materials selected by our teachers are also used.

 

Exams and Certification of knowledge of the language

All courses end with a written and oral exam based on the contents and skills acquired. The exams that conclude the B2 level courses are preferential for the granting of the study visa. For this reason, the B2 level exam is prepared by the CILS Center of the University for Foreigners of Siena. By issuing an official certification, the CILS Center measures, assesses and guarantees, adopting scientific criteria, the competence in Italian as a foreign language.  Subsequently, those who pass the B2 exam successfully obtain the CILS B2 Certification. The other levels (A1, A2, B1) are evaluated through a final exam prepared by the school.

 

External Candidates

The external candidates can take the final exam at level B2 (obtaining the CILS B2 Certification) by paying an exam fee. The test is usually run twice a year, in June and December. Registration takes place at least 2 months before.

 

Exam Preparation Courses for Universities

Upon request, courses to prepare for the admission exam to the various Italian universities are also set up. For the period April / July 2019 the following courses are active:

In Europe, to certify one’s information technology competence, it is required to have the European Computer License (ECDL), or Information Technology License.

This is a certification system that attests the ability of knowing how to use a personal computer at different levels of complication and specialization and constitutes an international standard of reference.

The ECDL Certification is internationally recognized and proves that its owner knows the fundamental principles of computer science and that he possesses the necessary skills to use correctly a personal computer and the main application programs. It is aimed at students, workers, or anyone interested in demonstrating their ability to use computers.

The certification body for Italy of the ECDL Program is AICA (Italian Association for Informatics and Automatic Calculation).

By registering for the course, the candidate is provided with a Skills Card which is an individual card on which the passed examinations are recorded.

The tests which are due to be passed are internationally defined and are identical in all European Union countries.

Each examination consists of a structured test lasting 45 minutes to ascertain the knowledge and skills of the candidate on the aforementioned issues.

When the candidate has passed all the scheduled examinations, he/she acquires the right to obtain the ECDL Certificate, which is issued directly by the AICA.
