At the ESI headquarters it is possible to support the exams to get the Certifications knowledge of the Italian language for all levels from A1 to C2 provided for by the Common European Framework of Reference (QCER).
The Italian Certification Center as a Foreign Language (CILS) of the University of Siena has in fact designated ESI as the Examination Center in the Netherlands for the dissemination and administration ofCILS exams (Italian Language Certificates) for all levels A1-C2.
Similarly the Center for Language Assessment and Certification of the University for Foreigners of Perugia has designated ESI as the Examination Center for the dissemination and administration of CELI exams (Italian Language Certificates) for all levels A1-C2.

These designations are a source of particular pride for ESI, in recognition of the quality and professionalism of teaching acquired over the years.
