All of the Leonardo da Vinci locations are recognized as Exam centers of the Accademia Italiana di Lingua (AIL) and all organize preparation courses for the 'Firenze' exams of the Accademia.

Different types of courses are offered according to the exam level which the student is taking.

The preparation program for the AIL exams combines our intensive Italian language course (4 Italian lessons a day, a total of 20 lessons a week) with a collection of 2 extra group lessons a day. These two extra lessons deal with specific preparation for the exam through exercises from practice exams, in class practices and exercises done with a partner, marked by the teacher.

Upon request, we can send you an entrance test which will confirm your level of knowledge of the Italian language and will establish the time needed for you to prepare for exams: contact us.

Special preparation courses always start one month before exam dates and last for a minimum of 4 weeks. This can be extended.

Lessons take place Monday-Friday in classes of no more than 14 students. Text books and materials used for practices are provided by the school and are included in the price of the course. The price of the course also includes the exam fee.
