CILS & CELI exam preparation


I am Serena, a Certified Italian Language Coach, Polyglot and Communication Consultant. 

I love guiding lifelong learners from all over the world to master the Italian Language and empower their lives and professions through smart language learning.

I have helped and guided adult learners to successfully pass their CILS exam for word, study and citizenship reasons for the last three years. 





You plan to pass the CILS exam for work, study or citizenship reasons. The Italian language exam comprehends five different levels. Most students decide to work towards the CILS 2,3,4.  During the 4 lesson discovery course, I will assess your level in all four areas of language comprehension: listening writing, speaking, reading

Based on the your background and level of Italian, I will a draw a personalized CILS (or CELI) preparation course to guide you the pass the Italian test and get your Certification of Italian as a foreign language with ease.



The course material consists of plenty of CILS exam samples and vocabulary / grammar sheets to rehearsal the fundamentals of the Italian language, depending on your level.

The course is blended and consists of regular weekly meetings and a guided homework that will be corrected by teacher. You won’t need to be tided to weekly lessons if you don’t have time for it. Each week you will be assigned a personalized study plan with a deadline to submit your homework. 

You work will be corrected and you receive a feedback with suggestions and indications for the upcoming tasks. 

This is by far the most effective way to improve your Italian and work toward the .. of you Italian Language Certification.

Don’t learn harder, learn smarter with a professional Italian Language Coach and Polyglot.


  • The vast majority of students set a goal to obtain an Italian language certification for work, study or citizenship reasons. Let me tell, this shouldn’t be the only reason! Last year I made a list of other several other reasons why taking the CILS exam is a brilliant idea. My favorite one is to boost up your motivation, especially if you have been plateauing for a while.

    Learning a language as an adult, in informal settings has some drawbacks too. Many students plateau at an intermediate level because they miss the guidance to perfect their writing or vocabulary, as is not needed.Committing to pass an Italian language test, entails focusing on perfecting those areas that you might often neglect on a general Italian language course: like writing or listening.

    Rest assure that perfecting those areas means that you will be a fantastic Italian speaker.

  • Everything comes down to your start and final point.
    Before anything, find clarity about what type and level of Italian and what is your current level of Italian.
    Once you know where you are and where you want to go, we can think in realistic terms of a timeframe.

Here is what learners from all aver the world say about me

I would like to thank you for my achievement in CILS at such a short period of time. Within 6 months, you have taken me from A1-A2 level to a B1 success. I was hesitant if distance learning could be productive but you have proven with your techniques that no matter how busy I was with my other works and even missed some of the classes due to my travels, Italian was within my reach. You have designed and redesigned the teaching method during the course to suit my needs and helped me overcome all the obstacles easily. I think being a polyglot you understand different difficulties and find answers. I  very grateful. Thanks for your patience and thanks for your great support.
