Project Description

PLIDA exam preparation course

ITALIAIDEA is an authorized PLIDA Certification Center.

WHAT IS PLIDA?
The PLIDA (Progetto Lingua Italiana Dante Alighieri) Test certifies competency in Italian as a foreign language. It is officially recognized by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Italian Ministry of Work and Social Policies, and the Italian Ministry of the Interior.
With a PLIDA Certification you can:
– clearly demonstrate your competency level in Italian on a CV;
– use the results to enroll in an Italian University without taking other language tests;
– obtain a long term work permit to stay in Italy.

The PLIDA certification is offered in six levels, corresponding to the ones suggested by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL):

Elementary ItalianPLIDA A1A1 QCER (Breakthrough Level)
PLIDA A2A2 QCER (Waystage Level)
Intermediate ItalianPLIDA B1B1 QCER (Threshold Level)
PLIDA B2B2 QCER (Vantage Level)
Advanced ItalianPLIDA C1C1 QCER (Proficiency Level)
PLIDA C2C2 QCER (Mastery Level)

For each level there are four sections, one for every linguistic skill; Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.
To pass the exam and obtain immediate certification, you need to achieve a minimum of 18 out of 30 points for each of the four section.
If you do not pass all sections, you have a year to repeat any single section in other scheduled exam sessions.

PLIDA PREPARATION COURSE AND EXAM SIMULATION

Italiaidea organizes group courses or one-to-one lessons for Plida preparation and offers an Exam Simulation before each session.
