PLIDA Accredited Examination Centre

Italian PLIDA exams

The Italian Section of the Foreign Language Centre is pleased to announce that it has become an Accredited Examination Centre of the PLIDA (Progetto Lingua Italiana Dante Alighieri) where you can sit exams to receive language diplomas certifying your level of proficiency in Italian as a foreign language.

You can sit the PLIDA exams according to your level. There are 6 levels named after the Common European Framework for Languages (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).

The PLIDA diplomas are officially recognised in Italy and abroad by academic institutions and employers, so if you are planning a career abroad or in Italy using your language skills, this certification will provide you with an official assessment of your language knowledge, a great addition to your CV.
