On the first day, students take a language test to determine their level and to enable us to create homogeneous classes. There are five levels divided into two cycles. Each level takes a month to complete. It is therefore possible to attend for a minimum of 1 month and a maximum of 5 months to complete the entire cycle.
Basic Level - a course progressing through three steps of the "threshold level B1"; that is, the level of communicative ability recognized by the Common European Framework for Languages as permitting participation in an Italian language environment.
Beginner Level - gives students the skills to deal with everyday situations, to satisfy basic needs, and to understand relatively simple information.
Intermediate Level - gives students the skills to handle most daily situations, to express their opinions and to explain, describe, and recount in a sufficiently precise manner.
Advanced Level - this enables students to reach the threshold level, i.e., to obtain those linguistic means of communication needed to move around easily within Italy and to communicate with Italians. The cycle places overall emphasis on the spoken language.
