If you are applying for the Italian citizenship by marriage:
Please note that our courses are valid in order to prepare you to reach B1 language level.
According to the law n.132 of 01/12/2018 the Italian language level required to apply for Italian citizenship by marriage must be certified at a B1 level.
To be entitled to do the B1 exam you have to study the contents of level A1, A2 and B1. The cost of the examination is not included. 
Once you have completed the language course, you can choose to go straight to the exam or to do the special PLIDA preparation course on the exam format (20 hours course). 
The B1 PLIDA exam is compulsory only for those who are applying for Italian citizenship by marriage.

►If you are not a beginner:
You will be required to have an assessment in order to allocate you to the right level. The cost of the assessment is R285, to be paid upfront via EFT. This amount will be deducted from course fees in case you enrol. All assessments will be online until further notice. Please get in touch to book.

Payment for fees, course material and membership fees are to be made upfront by bank transfer.
The school will be exceptionally open on Thursday 27 August from 12.00 to 15.00 for card payments.

In light of the recent lockdown restrictions, our staff and teachers are currently working from home so, despite the dire circumstances, we are fully operational!

The levels: The Common European Framework for Languages, a document released and updated by the Council of Europe, has identified six levels of language learning. These levels describe what a person should be able to do at different stages of learning. We are not talking about grammar knowledge, but the ability to communicate with a language. What can you do in Italian? At which level? Levels go from “basic user” to “independent user” to “proficient user”.

How do you know your level? Read the general descriptions here.
