Linguistic certifications

It’s more and more common hearing about the need to earn a certification in English both for education and professional reasons.
It is relevant on the CV of those who wish to study or work abroad and it’s an essential skill for those who aspire to have better job opportunities, because it officially guarantees the achievement of an excellent linguistic level.

The linguistic certification is a formal certificate, with international validity, that attests the knowledge of a language, emitted by a recognized Body and for this reason it’s the means of identification and official recognition of the personal know-how in a modern foreign language, because it establishes what a person “can do with that language”

The linguistic certification enriches your curriculum; it simplifies the insertion into the world of work, thanks to its additional value in the European context, it is recognized around European Union; it is useful for companies that work abroad because they are interested in recruiting employees able to work with foreign languages.

At University too, it’s important to have a certification for those who want to continue their study abroad; especially for the registration at European Universities where it is necessary to have a specific level of linguistic skills. In Italy, it’s now more common at University and Post-University schools, to require linguistic certifications that attest the knowledge of the students in foreign languages.
