The A2 level of Italian is considered the "survival level" (or elementary level). According to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), a speaker at the A2 level: "Can understand isolated phrases and common expressions related to areas of immediate relevance (e.g., basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, work). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and common topics. Can describe, in simple terms, aspects of their background, immediate environment, and basic needs."
What is the purpose of the B1 PLIDA certificate?
The PLIDA B1 certificate for knowledge of the Italian language, issued by the Società Dante Alighieri, is one of the documents to be submitted for the application for Italian citizenship.
The B1 level is referred to as the "threshold level." According to the CEFR, a B1 speaker "understands the main points of familiar topics related to school, leisure activities, etc. They can handle most situations that may arise while traveling in the country where the language is spoken. They can produce simple texts on topics that are familiar or of personal interest. They can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes, and ambitions, and briefly explain the reasons behind their opinions and plans."
