  /  Exam CILS

CILS (Certification of Italian as a Foreign Language) is a certification issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena. It is valid for obtaining the EC residence permit (A2 integration) and citizenship (B1 citizenship). It can also be used both in the world of work and in the university world, and is recognized by public and private institutions. The certification is based on the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). Each exam evaluates the language and communication skills of the 4 skills: writing, reading, speaking, listening. The exam is passed with a pass in each section. For most levels, it will be possible to repeat the single skill in the next session. NaCLIPS organizes exam preparation courses, in which you study the structure of the exam and practice on tests from previous sessions. The aim is to fill some grammatical gaps but the lessons are aimed at acquiring a certain familiarity with the tests (timing, methods of answers, types of questions, etc …)
