Certificate Italian B1 - Certificato d'Italiano

The Certificate d’Italiano B1 demonstrates that the student uses Italian correctly  in most daily  situations as well as in a familiar professional environment – in Italy but also in situations where Italian is used colloquially or as a business language (in universities or school,  at fairs, in restaurants etc.). This means that students can deal with all important private and professional matters in Italian. In addition, the Italian B1 demonstrates that the candidate has acquired the most important grammatical structures.
