Description

What is the CILS B1 cittadinanza certificate?

The CILS B1 cittadinanza (Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera) is the official Italian certification awarded by the University for Foreigners of Siena (Università per Stranieri di Siena) that will certify your level of Italian is B1. It is an officially recognised title that certifies the level of linguistic and communicative competence in Italian as a foreign language. This qualification is recognised by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is used to grant Italian citizenship for foreign nationals as well as acceptance in any Italian university or higher education institution in Italy . Due to the amendments to the Italian law in December 2018, it is now compulsory to obtain an Italian B1 language certification for all applicants for Italian citizenship through marriage or residence.

Structure of the CILS B1 cittadinanza test.
