CERTIFICATIONS OF ITALIAN AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

> CILS Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera (a certification issued by the Università per Stranieri di Siena) Visit www.unistrasi.it
As an official Exam Centre, it is possible to sit the exams at the APICS Italian Cultural Centre.
WHICH LEVELS DO WE COVER?
The CILS certification system covers all six levels of linguistic competency − as stated in the European framework:
Listening, reading & comprehension, writing, oral skills, grammar and lexicon.
APICS Italian Cultural Centre offers all six levels for the CILS Certification Exams for adults; and three levels for teenagers (aged 13-17 years).
WHO NEEDS CERTIFICATION?
Are you applying for Italian Citizenship?
Do you study Italian and wish to evaluate and officially certify your level of competency?
Do you work and study within an Italian context?
Are you looking to study at an Italian university?
The Ministry of the Università e della Ricerca recognises the CILS and CELI as a certificate of admission for foreign students into Italian universities, therefore a student shall be exempt from taking any other entrance exams related to linguistic ability.
CILS is recognised by Italian companies and will strengthen your candidacy when applying for jobs.
There is no age limit for applicants to sit the CILS exams; and applicants do not need to possess other educational certificates or degrees. Exam levels are independent of each other, meaning that a student can sit a higher level without having sat any of the previous levels.
