CILS is an officially recognized qualification that attests the degree of linguistic-communicative competence in Italian as L2.
CILS is the first certification of Italian to have adopted the system of six levels of linguistic-communicative competence proposed by the Common European Framework of Reference of the Council of Europe to have created specific certification modules for workers of foreign origin in Italy.
Each CILS level is autonomous and complete: the certification of each level declares a degree of communicative ability appropriate to specific social, professional and study contexts.
See the details for each CILS level in our table.
CILS Certificate is addressed to all those who study Italian and/or work in contact with Italian realities.
In order to take CILS exam, it is not necessary to have particular qualifications, but only a knowledge of the Italian language corresponding to the parameters indicated for each CILS level.
It is also important to have a knowledge of European society and culture, as well as general knowledge of Italian geography, history and culture.
Young people and teenagers can also take the CILS Level ONE and Level TWO tests, but these are not suitable for primary school children. For them, special certification modules have been created for Level A1 and A2.
