Special Courses

Unfortunately our CELI exam preparation courses have been suspended but, even though the school is still closed, 

we are now offering new online courses!

Please check our General Italian group courses page

Are you getting ready for an Italian certification exam (such as CELI or CILS)? Are you looking for a revision course to refresh your grammar and practice conversation? Check our timetable for special courses! We organize small group courses for CELI exam preparation every year starting in April and “refresh” courses in August. 


CELI (Certificato di Conoscenza della Lingua Italiana) is an Italian language qualification officially recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education and Research. It is issued by the Perugia University for Foreigners and it is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. There are 6 levels of exams: CELI impatto (A1); CELI 1 (A2); CELI 2 (B1); CELI 3 (B2); CELI 4 (C1); CELI 5 (C2). Click here for further information.

Our CELI exam preparation courses are designed by qualified CELI examiners. During the course, you will have the chance to focus on all sections of the exam with special attention on examination techniques and practice on past papers. Students attending an exam preparation course should already have the related level of proficiency.

Please note that, even though we provide exam preparation courses, we are not a centre of examination. Please visit this page to find your centre of examination in Dublin.
