What is DELE?

Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language (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.

Why is it a good idea to take the Preparation for DELE?

  • DELE exams are official certificates that accredits the grade of competence and master of the Spanish as a foreign language. They are given by The Instituto Cervantes in the name of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
  • The DELE certificates are important because they have an international recognition by private companies, chamber of commerce and public and private education systems. So if you are going to work, study or do voluntary jobs in Spanish speaking countries, they are a asset and sometimes a requirement*. (*please check individually with universities, companies and NG groups).

Where can I sit the exam?

Speak Spanish offers only DELE Preparation courses at the moment, not the exam. You will have to travel to Auckland (23th Nov 2019) or Sydney or to an accredited DELE testing centre. Speak Spanish will give you a certificate of the course. This certificate does not accredit the DELE title but the numbers of hours you have studied in this course.

How do I know what level I am?

Please enrol to the course. We have to check your level and accept your enrolment before you start. Be aware, it is not a course to obtain new knowledge of the language. It is a course to PREPARE you for the DELE exam ( the student must have the knowledge required depending on the level the student wants to achieve). If your level is not up to this preparation we will refund $470.00. The registration fee is non refundable.

What would we do in the Preparation for DELE?

  • Student motivation and dedication are essential. We will work with all skills needed for the DELE Diploma - writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar.
  • Writing: student do the first writing tasks at home recording the time it took to do it. The teacher will use correction symbols so students can work out what the errors are and are able to self correct them. The teacher will guide them during the process.
  • Listening: audios are generally worked in class but we do encourage students to listen to them again at home.
  • Vocabulary & grammar: students do these exercises at home recording the time they need to complete them. Common mistakes are worked in class with the teacher's guidance.
  • Speaking: students speak and correct mistakes in class. The teacher guides students to improve fluency and use expressions, connectors that will help students to reach a higher grade.

Am I expected to do extra work between classes?

  • Yes, you are expected to do a considerable amount of work between classes especially if there is an area you need extra practice. You will receive the book and a working guide on the day of your Level Test.

I have passed the test, what now?
