    Hi Serena

    Just to say that your site is brilliantly structured. It was the first one to pop up in my search results, it”s easy to understand, and I could quickly find what I needed. A refreshing change from many of my other experiences on the web!

    I’m looking into tuition and/or tests to enable me to gain Italian citizenship, am a huge language enthusiast working with a very well known Italian company, but with limited Italian. (So far speak Portuguese, French and German).

    Hoping you may be able to help…

    All the best

    Phil, UK

    I am planning on taking the B1 Plida exam next year. I am worried about the oral part as I am a shy person by nature and I have a hard time with public speaking. Do you have an idea of what topics they usually ask about or any tips? Grazie Mille!

      Usual topics for B1 requires speaking about your personal preferences or events, generally talking about your last vacations, the last movie you watched or your favorite book or city. Good luck!

    Ciao Serena 🙂 grazie per scrivere questo articolo; è molto informativo! Is it possible to take the exam without taking a course at a specific school? We are in the U.S. thank you so much.
