Placement test

All students interested in attending an Italian language course must register for a computer-based Italian placement test, to be held on October 8, 10 and 11, 2018, at CertLab, via G. Colombo 46, Room 701. According to the test results, they will be assigned to the course which best fits with their Italian language level.

 

Students with no previous Italian language knowledge can ask to be assigned to the basic course without taking the placement test.

 

Students who did not register in due time can still take the Placement Test in an extra session on October 19, 2018, at 9.30 a.m., in the computer Lab of SLAM, via S. Sofia 11, by filling in this online form.

Final test

The final tests of the Italian language courses take place at the end of each semester, i.e. in February (1st semester) and June (2nd semester). Only students who attend at least 66% of lessons are allowed to sit the final test. After the test, students will receive a course completion report certifying the level they reached.
