What is CIMA?
Developed by the Arab World Institute based on other tests like TOEIC and TCF, CIMA, which stands for “Certificat International de Maîtrise en Arabe”, or International Certificate for Arabic Proficiency, is the first internationally recognized certification that assesses one’s proficiency in modern standard Arabic.
  • The test is intended for anyone above 15 years old.
  • It costs 156 euros if taken at IMA. In other centers, the price may differ according to their policy.
  • The test lasts three hours and 11 minutes and is made up of four tasks: oral comprehension, written comprehension, speaking and writing.
  • If you validate any level starting A1, you will obtain a certificate proving your level according to the CEFR scale: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2.
