Italian Exams

The exams to be prepared for at Plurilingua language school, for those students who wish to study in Italy, are two and they are both recognised by the Italian Ministry of Labour and Social Policies and by the Italian Ministry of University and Research as a qualification that attests proficiency in Italian as a foreign language.
The exams are plotted against six-level scale, representing the successive stages of learning, and correspond to the six levels (A1-C2) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages by the Council of Europe (QCE) and  ALTE (Association of Language testers in Europe).
