CILS is aimed at foreign nationals or Italian citizens resident abroad. You do not need to have special study titles to support your exams, nor do you have to pass the lower CILS.
A CILS certificate can be used for study or work reasons. Each level of CILS attests a viable communicative capacity in different situations and contexts. The CILS Certificate allows you to enroll in Italian Universities without having to take the test of knowledge of Italian at the chosen University. The recommended level in this case is the 2 level. Foreign students with 3 or 4 levels can obtain an additional score for the ranking of the eligible.
Many companies that work abroad or want to hire foreign workers or foreign companies that have business relations with Italy require their employees to have one of the CILS certificates, depending on the job they are to perform.
The 4 level is the level required for a foreigner to teach Italian.
Exams take place twice a year: at the beginning of June and December, at the same time all over the world. At our school the CILS preparation courses begin in September and March. The exam will be held at our language institute in Genoa. The CILS examination fee is independent of the preparation course.
