The courses at the Accademia Lingua Italiana Assisi, from 12/12/2002 have been recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education (n° 42256/C19). Our courses operate within the levels A1 to C2, as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference. We issue a certificate of attendance and a proficiency certificate between A1 and C2. Our course levels are:
BEGINNERS: A1 ELEMENTARY I / ELEMENTARY II: A2 INTERMEDIATE I: B1 INTERMEDIATE II / INTERMEDIATE III: B2 ADVANCED I /ADVANCED II: C1 ADVANCED III / ADVANCED IV: C2
At the start of each course we ascertain the correct course level for each student. The final attainment level depends on the type (standard, intensive, combined, individual) and duration of the course. The structure of the course allows students to be aware of their progress, both through our regular internal assessments and finally through the CILS/PLIDA e ROMA TRE exams should they choose to take this exam.
As we are partnered with the Neumann University, students who take our 4 weeks standard course (80 hours) are eligible to receive Neumann University transfer credits (3 credits). Courses offered: Italian 101, 102, 201 and 202. The credits will normally be transferable to most American colleges and universities.
University of the Pacific summer immersion: two semesters of beginning Italian for 8 units or intermediate conversation for 6 units.
