PLIDA Certification now available @ DASWA

We are pleased to announce that The “Societa’ Dante Alighieri” di Roma granted “Dante Alighieri Society of WA” the PLIDA Certification.
The PLIDA (Progetto Lingua Italiana Dante Alighieri) certificate is an official diploma issued by the Società Dante Alighieri under an agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and with the approval of the University of Rome. The PLIDA is also recognized by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies and by the Ministry of University and Research as a qualification for the university entry of foreign students.
The PLIDA certificate attests proficiency in Italian as a foreign language on the basis of 6-level scale established by the Council of Europe in the Common European Framework for Languages: from level A1, the most elementary, documenting the ability to use Italian in everyday situations, to level C2, the most qualified, guaranteeing an expertise comparable to that of an educated mother-tongue speaker, and which can be used in all professional contexts. Please also note that a PLIDA certification level B1 is required for the Italian citizenship applications.
Dante Alighieri Society of WA is now the sole PLIDA assessor in WA. Courses and exams will start in 2020. We recommend to stay tuned with our media channels for more detailed information including dates.
