Placement tests

If you already have some knowledge of the language and are interested in taking a course above A1, we recommend you get in touch to discuss which course is best for you.

If you would like a rough idea of what your level is now, you can do one of these online tests:

  • Test del livello dell'italiano (36 multiple choice grammar questions of increasing difficulty, result available online immediately)
  • 15-minute placement test (The test has been designed by test developers at the test provider telc, takes approx. 15 minutes and tests reading, listening, vocabulary and grammar. Each question has a countdown feature, i.e. when the time is up, you have to move on to the next question.)

    If you would like a more accurate assessment of your current level, go to:
  • Dialang This placement test tests listening, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary. There are approx. 30 questions per skill and you have 20 - 30 minutes to answer them, although the time itself is not measured. On completion, you can see which questions you answered incorrectly.
