In the final exam, students are tested on their written and oral comprehension, language use (mainly based on grammar and vocabulary), and writing skills. There is not a speaking test.

Before starting an Italian language course, you need to take the Entry/Placement Test in order to place you in the appropriate group.

Absolute beginners do not need to take the Entry/Placement test. They have to contact Maria Chiara Aielli and Giorgia Bassani.

The on campus classes take place in D’Azeglio street/ Kennedy street. The online classes take place via MS Teams.

In both cases is strictly recommended the use of Elly platform.
