The AP Italian Language and Culture Exam
 

The AP Italian Language and Culture course engages students who are preparing to take the AP Italian exam in a deep exploration of the Italian language and culture.  Students will develop advanced communication skills in Italian by applying interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational skills in real-life situations. This includes vocabulary usage, language control, communication strategies, and cultural awareness. Additionally, the AP Italian Language and Culture course develops students’ awareness and appreciation of cultural products (e.g., tools, books, music, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions within a culture); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions).  (10 weeks)

CILS TEST PREPARATION

CILS.Certification of Italian as a Foreign Language (Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera

The Certification of Italian as a Foreign Language is a qualification offered by the Foreigners University of Siena for foreign speakers of the Italian language, recognizing various levels of language proficiency. The qualification is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is often used to grant acceptance in any Italian university or higher education institution in Italy. 


CILS Uno The first (B1) of the more advanced levels requires the passing of a three hour-long examination, testing an applicant's knowledge of basic Italian.

CILS Due The second level (B2) features a four hour-long examination with an advancement of difficulty. This level is considered as recognizing an applicant's sustained ability to adequately converse in Italian and is the level from which one may apply for entrance to an Italian university without sitting the normally obligatory language assessment.

CILS Tre The third level (C1) is again another advancement in difficulty and represents a high competence in speaking Italian. An applicant must pass a five hour-long examination to receive this level of qualification.

CILS Quattro The fourth level (C2) is the highest level of the CILS qualifications. Upon successful completion of the five and a half-hour long examination of this level an applicant is regarded as having reached a point of language mastery, almost akin to that of a native.  (10 weeks)
