"Regular" courses - levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1

The Italian regular courses are aimed at:

  • exchange students (Erasmus+, Overseas, ICM, etc.)
  • foreign students attending the first year of a Degree Course or Specialisation Course at UNIMORE
  • visiting guests at UNIMORE who are involved in international exchange projects (scholarship holders, PhD students, post-grads, researchers and lecturers)


ATTENTION PLEASE! Students are invited to take note of the following information. In order to be admitted to the Italian regular courses, students must pass a compulsory placement test. Students whose level in Italian is not high enough to take part in the regular courses will be invited to attend an online A1 course for self-study. Please note that the online A1 course for self-study does not grant Educational Credits.


Our regular courses are offered at levels A1 - A2 - B1 - B2 - C1 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference).

Each course includes:

  • 36 hours of face-to-face lessons (twice a week)
  • 14 hours of online self-learning activities 

Students must attend at least 80% of classes, as well as take part in class activities and regularly do their homework. 

At the end of each course, students have to take a final written and spoken exam. The written exam tests candidates' comprehension and written production skills by means of a reading comprehension with open-ended questions and the composition of a short text, as well as assessing syntactic and lexical skills through a set of grammar exercises.
