A quick ‘heads up’ for anyone interested in certifying their level in Italian.
If you’re still mulling over certifying your level in Italian with a CILS exam, the moment has arrived to make a decision!
The enrollment deadline for the next bi-annual exam session is in a week or so.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here are two recent articles:
- Certify your knowledge of Italian with a CILS exam!
- Take an Italian course, get an A1 or A2 CILS exam FREE!
Or see our regular CILS page.
Exam fees can be paid conveniently and cheaply through our online shop, in the same way as course/accommodation deposits.
For more information:
It’s that time of the year when I suggest boosting your resume, or just motivating yourself to study, by signing up for a CILS Italian language exam.
And, as usual, we have a special promotion!
Book a group Italian course of any length, even just a week, at the same time as registering for a CILS exam at our center and we will discount your course by the cost of the A1 or A2 exam (€40).
In effect, you pay for your course, and get an A1 or A2 exam for FREE!
Or, if you’d prefer to take one of the more costly, higher-level exams, you still qualify for a €40 discount on your course.
(Please note that this offer does not apply to individual Italian lessons, only group courses.)
For the next session of CILS, on June 9th, the enrollment deadline is Thursday 7th April 2016.
It’s possible to enrol directly at our school in Bologna, or online through our shop. Here are the links:
If unsure about your level, or anything else for that matter, here’s how to contact us with your question.

Learning Italian is one thing, but wouldn’t it be useful to have a recognized international qualification to certify your knowledge of the language for future employers or for university entrance?
The CILS exams, organized by the University of Siena, will allow you to do just that!
You can choose between six different levels, according to your ability, and take the exam at our school in Bologna any June or December.
A CILS certificate would look great on your CV / resume and enrollments are already open for the June 2016 session.
Madrelingua can help you prepare for your CILS exam in three ways:
- with a regular or intensive Italian course in the period before the exam session
- with Italian evening classes, if you’re working or studying in our city
- or individually, with personalised Italian lessons, either face to face or online via Skype
Apologies to anyone uninterested in taking an Italian exam, but (as predicted) the University of Siena, which organizes the CILS ‘Italian language for foreigners’ exams, has extended the deadline for enrollments for the December 2015 exams.
The last day for enrollments is now Thursday 29th of October. To give us time to process your registration, we’d ask that you enroll by midday.

A quick reminder for anyone wanting to get qualified in Italian: the deadline for enrolling for a CILS Italian language exam is this Friday!
That said, every year the University of Siena writes to us at the last minute to announce that they’re keeping registrations open for another week, so don’t be surprised if you get an erratum to this email…
For the moment, though, it’s ‘get it done by Friday or wait until June 2016!’

No, not ‘chills’ as in the song made famous by the 1978 romantic comedy Grease.
CILS as in the University of Siena’s Italian language exams ‘Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera’.
So if this is the year you plan to get your Italian language skills certified, enrollments are now open for the next CILS exam session on December 3rd 2015.
A CILS certificate would look great on anyone’s resume, and is accepted by Italian universities and other institutions as proof of your level in Italian.
But even if you don’t need an Italian certification for work or study, the discipline of preparing for a language exam can be very motivating.
What’s more, taking and passing an internationally-recognized qualification is a great way to measure your progress with Italian.

The deadline for enrollments is 23rd October.
