Our school offers both group and private classes of Italian.
Each group class includes 4-8 students and will commence with a minimum of 4 students. Courses are offered on a modular basis (from module 1 to module 3) and each module follows the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). Each teaching class lasts 2 hours, for a total of 12 classes (24 hours) per module. The A2 book will be issued on the first day of lesson and will be used for all of the 3 modules.
1:1 private classes are offered both inside and outside the school, varying from a 10-hour package (once per week) to a 20-hour package (twice per week). They are customized according to the student’s needs and each package can be repurchased.
At the end of their three A2 modules, our students reach the “waystage level” in Italian (pre intermediate level: A2) and are able to understand isolated sentences and common expressions related to familiar fields (e.g. basic information about a person and their family, shopping vocabulary and expressions, local geography and work, etc.). They can communicate in simple routine situations in which they need to exchange simple and direct information on familiar and habitual topics and they can elementarily describe their past events and present life.
Students must maintain a minimum of 75% attendance (9 lessons out of 12) to be eligible for a Certificate of Attendance awarded by the Singapore Italian School.
By reaching the A2 level, the student has a basic knowledge of the Italian language and is able to test their Italian language knowledge through the language exam CILS level A2. The CILS certification is a qualification issued by the university which declares the level of linguistic and communicative competences in Italian as a foreign language.
Our students can take this exam at the end of their A2.3 module, once they have completed all of the 3 modules A2. At the end of each module (A2.1, A2.2, A2.3) they will be tested with a 50-minutes exam based on the topics learned in the module, which however does not function as a language certificate.
The CELI 1 (A2 level exam) is divided into 4 parts which will test the student’s written comprehension (part 1), their written production (parts 2), their oral comprehension (part 3) and oral production (part 4). To complete part 1 – part 3 you will be given 2 hours and 20 minutes followed by a break, while part 4 will take 10 minutes.
