The Diplomas in Spanish DELE are official qualifications certifying the degree of competence and mastery of Spanish, granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain.
The DELE examination provides for all the different variants of the Spanish language. They are all considered as valid to obtain the diploma.
The DELE examinations have been designed following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe, which ensures a practical way of establishing a standard, international and objective measurement of the level that should be reached at each teaching stage, and in evaluating results.
The University of Salamanca collaborates with Instituto Cervantes in designing exam papers and in grading the tests leading to the Diplomas in Spanish.
The levels of the Diplomas in Spanish are integrated into the CEFR:
- Diploma in Spanish Level A1.
- Diploma in Spanish Level A2.
- Diploma in Spanish Level B1.
- Diploma in Spanish Level B2.
- Diploma in Spanish Level C1.
- Diploma in Spanish Level C2.
The “Diplomas in Spanish as a Foreign Language” were created within the framework of the series of actions aimed at disseminating the Spanish language and raising the profile of our culture abroad.
