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.

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

Our CELI preparation courses are going to start at the end of April (for the June session), calendar will be available in March.
