AEF is an official testing center for CILS certification exam in Florence, authorized by the University for Foreigners of Siena - International University.

AEF developed a CILS Exam Preparation Course to help students obtain the official Italian Certificate as a Foreign Language (Certificato d'Italiano come Lingua Straniera – CILS) in each of the 6 levels.
The main topics are: oral comprehension and conversation, written comprehension, composition and grammar.
Courses are available in the weeks before the exam dates with a minimum of 3 students enrolled, to give you an in-depth preparation for each skill required in the exam. In every class, you will practice on past CILS exams and other specific materials, according to your needs.
To become more familiar with the exam structure, you will also take mock tests that have the same structure and length of the CILS exam.
