Online Italian language course specialized in responding to the linguistic difficulties of native Chinese speakers. The course is realized thanks to an agreement between Fondazione Italia Cina and Didael KTS. It allows you to develop the language skills provided by the 6 levels of the Common European Framework of the Council of Europe and to prepare properly for the certification exams. The scientific validity of the project is guaranteed by the collaboration with Direzione del Centro d’Ateneo per la promozione della lingua e della cultura italiana “Chiara e Giuseppe Feltrinelli” (CALCIF) and Centro interdipartimentale di ricerca sull’Asia contemporanea (CARC) of the University of Milan. An important contribution to “Italian for Chinese” came also from the Ministry of the Interior and the State Police, whose availability made it possible to set some dialogues of the course at the Questura in Milan, making photographs of the premises and staff.
