Preparation course for obtaining Italian citizenship - level B1

As of 2018, the Italian government has set a new condition for obtaining Italian citizenship: every applicant must have a certificate of knowledge of the Italian language at level B1. This is a relatively high level that requires a respectable familiarity with the language. If skills at a basic everyday conversation level were once sufficient, today the requirements have become much more serious and knowledge of grammatical subjects and a considerable vocabulary is required. Reaching this level requires study and investment.


The DANTE Institute offers a course that accompanies students until they achieve mastery of Italian at the B1 level.
