italian language diplom courses in FlorenceExamination Courses - AIL Diploma

The Leonardo da Vinci School in Florence boasts being one of the founding partners of the Accademia Italiana di Lingua (AIL), the association that certifies the level of Italian language reached with the “Firenze” Diplomas.
At our school, it is possible to take these AIL exams at four different times throughout the year: in the spring, summer, autumn and winter sessions.
The AIL Diplomas, recognised and used for their reliability in various countries throughout Europe, closely reflect the guidelines set out in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. They respect the required structure and are based on the 6 reference levels as set out in the guidelines.

  • Beginner Level: DELI A1 & DELI A2
  • Intermediate Level: DILI B1 & DILI B2
  • Advanced level: DALI C1 & DALI C2

There are also two levels for Business Italian:

  • Intermediate Level: DILC B1
  • Advanced level: DALC C1

The course to obtain the AIL certificate always begins the month before the exam date and consists of 80 lessons of Italian language plus 40 for exam preparation - practice tests, listening and oral tests - for a total of 120 lessons.

Why not take advantage of this fantastic opportunity? Finish you studies by getting a Diploma and maybe wanting to get another one and another one…

catriona turnbull student of italian language in florenceDuring my time spent at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci, I attended lessons for the preparation of a language diploma, B2. The course itself was very thorough and all aspects of the exam were covered in depth. I had practice speaking, writing, reading and listening which gave me confidence sitting the exam. The teaching and preparation was excellent, with help and support given from fantastic teachers and was very well prepared. I would highly recommend the course for anyone who is considering sitting a diploma in Italian.
