    Languages:

    The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions that can be divided into six levels; for each level, it describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing. These levels are:

    Level group Level group name Level Level name Description

    • Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.
    • Can introduce themselves and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people they know and things they have.
    • Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
    A2 Waystage or elementary
    • Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).

    Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE) are official titles certifying degree of competence and mastery of the Spanish language, granted by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain. The Instituto Cervantes organizes examination sessions, while the Universidad de Salamanca in Spain designs the exams, and is in charge of corrections and the final evaluation of all exams.

    Why choose DELE?

    DELE is a prestigious and internationally recognized qualification, proving an appropriate level of competence in Spanish. DELE examinations are complementary certifications to the programs of compulsory education in foreign languages in many countries and institutions, and they are also instrumental in aiding personal promotion in all academic areas and the professional marketplace.
