Italian Language Course C2.1 Proficiency
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 C2 book will be issued on the first day of lesson and will be used for both 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 two C2 modules, our students reach the “mastery level” in Italian (proficiency level: C2) and are able to understand without any effort everything they hear or read in Italian. They can sum up information from any kind of source (both oral and written) and re-compose a coherent text about it. They can express themselves fluently and precisely, by making use of some linguistic and pragmatic nuances to convey slightly different meanings according to the context.
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 C2 level, the student masters the Italian language and is able to test their Italian language knowledge through the language exam CILS level C2. 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 C2.2 module, once they have completed both C1 modules. At the end of each module (C2.1, C2.2) 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 CILS C2 level exam is divided into 5 parts which will test the student’s oral comprehension (part 1), the written comprehension (part 2), the grammatical structure knowledge (part 3), the written production (part 4) and the oral production (part 4). To complete part 1 – part 4 you will be given 5 hours and 15 minutes (with a 15-minute break before part 3), while part 5 will take 15 minutes and will test both your oral interaction (dialogue with your teacher) and oral production (monologue on a topic) skills.
