CELI exams preparation courses

Our Centre organizes Courses for Preparation for the CELI Exams of the University for Foreigners of Perugia (esami CELI dell’Università per Stranieri di Perugia). Our Institute is an authorised Exam Centre for CELI (Certificato di Lingua Italiana).

The CELI Certification is one of the only 4 Certifications officially recognized by Law by the Italian Ministry of Education and is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning Teaching, Assessment of the Council of Europe and the ALTE Framework.

The other Certification officially recognized are CILS exams (University for Foreigners of Siena), Certificato IT exams (University of Tor Vergata – Rome) and PLIDA exams (Società Dante Alighieri).

A legally recognized Certification is valid for:

· enrolling to Italian Universities without having to pass the Proficiency Language Exam (CELI 3 exam);
· teaching Italian in primary and secondary schools in Italy (CELI 5)
· being listed in the European Language Portfolio. The European Language Portfolio was developed and piloted by the Language Policy Division of the Council of Europe, Strasbourg, from 1998 until 2000. It was launched on a pan-European level during the European Year of Languages as a tool to support the development of plurilingualism and pluriculturalism.
· being listed in C.V. for job search as a legally recognized Certification of knowledge of the Italian language.
· being Internationally recognized by International Institutions.
· being easily comparable with other international Language Certification, according to the ALTE Framework.

In fact, there are 5 levels of exams:
