Since its establishment in 1981, the Federation is administering Palso proficiency tests successfully in four languages.

LAAS (Language Attainment Assessment System) is a system that assesses proficiency in a foreign language.

Laas tests are recognized by the International Certificate Conference (I.C.C.), since they meet international standards.

Laas-Palso exams are conducted in a perfect and unimpeachable way due to our long experience which ensures excellence.

The goal of the Lass-Palso exams is to assess students’ knowledge of foreign languages ​​in an objective and fair manner, based on modern scientific criteria. We also aim to reward positive and progressive approach towards learning a foreign language, to encourage students and to provide Language Schools with data regarding the performance of their students.

Please find below the test mark for each level

English Grades: Pass -Merit – Excellent

Italian Grades: Bene -Molto Bene – Ottimo

and the passing mark is 50% of the total score (individual scores offset).
