DELE Exams

Linguistic competence in the Spanish language

DELE Exam

DIPLOMAS IN SPANISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

The DELE diplomas, granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, are official and international accreditations of a person’s degree of proficiency in Spanish. The diplomas can be obtained by completing an examination that tests the candidate’s ability to read, write, speak and understand spoken Spanish, according to internationally standardized levels of competence established by the Council of Europe in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

RECOGNITION AND VALIDITY

The DELE Diplomas are internationally recognized and enjoy great prestige – not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce. The DELE diploma is a guarantee of linguistic competence in the Spanish language.

The diploma is valid indefinitely and does not have to be renewed.
