La preparazione all’esame Ail Dili B1. è andata molto produttiva. La mia insegnante era Alessandra, faceva tutto piano piano, con calma. Tutto era molto chiaro. Ho conosciuto tante nuove cose in italiano che mi hanno aiutato durante l’esame. Dopo 3 – 4 settimane della preparazione sono stato assolutamente pronto per l’esame e l’ho fatto senza grandi problemi.
