AIL - Accademia Italiana di Lingua

AIL - Accademia Italiana di Lingua
The Italian Academy of Languages ("Accademia Italiana di Lingua") was born in Florence in 1984 as a non-profit association between private and public schools that teach Italian as a second and a foreign language.
The need to create an certification assocation was principally due to a lack of this, for the Italian language. It was supported by the recommendations of the European Council, who advised the division of differing exam levels. 
From the beginning, the association has used the services of experts in the field of certification, in particular the Head of 'Italian certification' in Pedagogy at VHS Germany, Dr Heinz Reiske of Frankfurt, and the Swiss UP delegate for the same certificate, Dr Rolf Mäder of Berna. The certificates of VHS are more well-known as the 'International Certificate Conference - ICC', renowned in WBR and later in TELC. 
The first exam the Association created was the DALI, C1 advanced level (1984) followed by DILI, B1 intermediate level (1993) and finally the DELI, A2 basic level (1995).
In addition, the DALC, C2 advanced commercial language's diploma was born in 1995, whilst the DILC, B1 intermediate commercial language's diploma dates back to 2002.
Since 2005, the range that the AIL offers has expanded with the DILI B2, a "pre-advanced" level exam which, with a level between the DILI B1 and the DALI C1, tests the candidates' linguistic abilities on a B2 level.
Since 2007, the AIL DILC - B1 Examination has been recognized by the UFFT (Swiss Federal Office for professional education and technology) as the final Exam of Italian, it being second national language for all the professional, commercial schools of the Swiss Confederation.
Since 2009,the  DALI C2 advanced level exam has also been available.
