TEST FIDE

Since 2019, the Glossa Language School has been accredited as an examination centre for the for the Italian language, known as “test fide”. Further information on the language passport “fide” can be found HERE.

We would like to remind you, that starting from the 1st of January 2019, immigrants from countries outside the EU have to submit a proof of language competence to the competent authority in order to apply for, or renew a type B/C residence (resident foreign nationals-B) or settlement permit (settled foreign nationals-C).

  • Enrolment

Enrolment for the “test fide” is possible at any time, but must be done not later than 14 days before the exam. In the event that the candidate does not show up at the indicated time, although he or she has duly enrolled, the cancellation fee will not be reimbursed. Nevertheless, the candidate will have the opportunity to take the examination at a later date without having to pay the examination fee once again.

Registering for the exam is possible either by e-mail, or by appearing in person at our head office in Ascona, Via Muraccio 61a. After leaving their personal data, the examinees will be contacted at a later date.

  • Fees

The preliminary examination is free of charge and non-binding; the complete “fide” exam costs CHF 270.- and includes both the registration fee of CHF 250.- and the cancellation fee of CHF 20.- The latter will be refunded to the candidate if he or she arrives punctually on the day of the exam and signs the receipt for the refund.

If only the oral part of the examination is to be taken (“SPEAKING” and “LISTENING”), the fee is CHF 170.- ; for the written part (“READING and WRITING”) it amounts to CHF 120.-.

  • Pre-examinations and exams of linguistic competence

The “fide” exams take place every month at our school. We advise students to take a free pre-examination allowing candidates to assess their language level before taking the real exam. In that way, the candidate may decide to take the “fide” exam on the first possible date, or to opt for additional language lessons in order to prepare for the exam. During the preliminary examination, the candidate will receive all the information necessary for undertaking the “fide” exam.

As an alternative, we advise you to take a practice test, which you can download here (for Italian):
