Test di competenza linguistica CELI – level B1 cittadinanza

The official test is divided in 4 sections, each one dedicated to a specific language competence:
Reading
Writing
Listening
Speaking

We offer two different sets of classes starting next Fall term.


Preparation class

12-hour course
Cost is $240 + $10 nonrefundable registration fee

Class meets once a week on Saturday afternoons from 12:30 to 2:30 pm.

First class meets on Saturday, October 5th. 

Classes are intended for applicants to the official test, and to anyone else interested on taking the test B1, who has already reached a level B1 of general Italian proficiency.
Level B1 as defined by the European criteria corresponds to an intermediate level in most of the language schools in the US.

The course covers two different areas:
1. Vocabulary and grammar rules review according to the level B1
2. Practice of the 4 language skills in different contexts and situations as indicated by the CELI guide.
Through exercises in class and home assignments, the instructor will help you build your vocabulary, master the grammar and the necessary skills in the four competencies listed above.

These special classes are intended for applicants to the official test who would like to get familiar with the test material, instructions, timing and organization.
Each class is dedicated to one specific section test and applicants will simulate the test with the same instructions, material and timing.
Depending on the section each class will simulate between 1 and 4 times the same type of the test section.
The instructor will give you suggestions on how to handle the test and at the end of the class will correct your results and give you feedback on what to review and practice.
