ALCE | Accademia Lingue e Culture Europee

Dates & fees

Placement and levels

On the first day the student is asked to take a test to determine his/her level. This test is both written and oral and is based upon the European Common Framework. The test is also designed to determine each student’s particular needs. The ALCE teaching program operates through a series of levels and modules.
Every two weeks progress is monitored with a graded test.


After the placement test, students receive and work through:
• a student text book / manual (according o the different levels)
• a self-study / exercise book (that is to be completed at home and presented to the teacher every Friday in order to be corrected)
• a varied and exhaustive self-produced workbook (“dispense”) which includes grammar, syntax, vocabulary, exercises and in fact is an outline of the course.

The school is closed on the following dates
