Courses in Italian Language for Tor Vergata University’s foreign students

CLICI organizes Extensive Courses in Italian Language and Culture for Tor Vergata University’s foreign students. The Courses (60 hours each) will be run from 12 October to 19 December 2020 (1st-semester courses) and from 15 March to early June 2021 (2nd-semester courses).

In the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021, CLICI will provide online Italian language courses remotely.

The courses include 40 hours in synchronous mode (20 lessons of two hours each, held twice a week on the Zoom platform) + 20 hours in asynchronous mode for a total of 60 hours.

The courses are free for all foreign students enrolled at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.


It is possible to register for the second semester courses from 31 December 2020 to 8 February 2021.


  • Students who are absolute beginners in Italian language are requested to register on CLICI’s platform without taking the placement test.


  • Students who are not beginners are requested to:
  1. register on the platform filling out the form with their personal information;
  2. choose one of the following dates to take an online interview for the speaking skills assessment:
  • 21 January (4.00 pm – Italian time zone)

It is possible to book the online interview – which has to take place after completing the placement test – up to a week before. However, we recommend that you choose the date for the interview as soon as possible, as up to 30 students will be admitted to each session.

Further information about the placement test will be available on

Each class will be run only if the minimum number of 15 students for that language level is reached.

Students, who attend 70% of the 40 hours in synchronous mode and 70% of the activities in asynchronous mode, will be given a certificate of attendance and will be admitted to the final exam. Students, who pass the final test, will receive a final grade certificate. 

The classes’ schedule will be provided by email about one week before the courses’ beginning along with information about how to access lessons on Zoom.
