PLIDA

Put your Italian skills to the test

The PLIDA exams can certify your competence in Italian as a foreign language and test your ability to use the language at different levels of complexity, from level A1 to level C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference.
PLIDA exams for adults include levels A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.

The PLIDA Junior exams are for teenage students aged 13 to 18. They require the same general language skills as the PLIDA exams for adults, but the tests employ texts and examples of language in contexts that are familiar to teenagers in this age group. The exam levels offered in the PLIDA Junior certification are A1, A2, B1, B2.

Examinations at all levels are held in more than 300 Examination Centres in over 60 countries.
