DITALS - Certification of Competence in Teaching Italian to Foreigners

University for Foreigners of Siena http://ditals.unistrasi.it 

DITALS is a professional qualification offered by the University for Foreigners of Siena for teachers (or prospective teachers) of Italian as a foreign language. DITALS certificates are graded according to levels of competence, allowing candidates to prepare for those levels which best suit their professional needs.

The DITALS Certification attests that holders have the theoretical and practical skills necessary to work as L2 Italian teachers.

For more detailed information on the DITALS certification and prerequisites, please visit: http://ditals.unistrasi.it/1/8/ESAMI.htm

How to apply

The application form must be completed and sent to IIC Melbourne with a photocopy of an identification document (such as passport or driver’s license) by the deadlines specified for each session.

This amount does not include the registration fee to the University of Siena (€20 for Ditals I and €40 for Ditals II). For those candidates who are repeating components of the DITALS exam and therefore do not need to sit the full exam, the administration fee payable to the IIC is reduced to $70.
