DELE Exam – Spanish Proficiency Test
DELE stands for Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera, or “Spanish as a Foreign Language Diploma”. It is the only certificate for non-native Spanish speakers that is officially recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education. This diploma is of great international value for those who are going to study at a Spanish University and who want to work, or are going to work in a Spanish-speaking environment.
We advise everyone taking a long term Spanish course to take the DELE Preparation course for a successful examination. Please note, however, that the preparation course is not intended to help you achieve a higher Spanish level, but to prepare you for the exam of your current level.
There are DELE Preparation courses for each exam, according to the level of qualification (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2), that can be obtained at all the don Quijote Spanish schools in Spain and Latin America. Until now, a very high percentage of our students have successfully passed the exam. This does not guarantee that you will pass the official DELE exam, as this depends on many circumstances. However, we do guarantee that you get a high quality DELE Preparation Course.
The place and time of the DELE courses are based on the examination dates established by the Spanish Ministry of Education each year.
Due to practical advantages, most students decide to take the DELE exam in Spain. However, the test can also be taken outside of Spain. The examination fees are set each year by the Spanish Ministry of Education, the Cervantes Institute and each individual examination center.
