DELE diplomas are the official Spanish qualifications certifying degree of competence and mastery of Spanish, granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain.
They were created in 1988 and follow the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and are recognised not only by public and private educational institutions, but also within the business world and Chambers of Commerce worldwide.
Each part contains several tasks and each task contains several items; the total of each part counts towards 25% of the total score.
Exam times range from one and a half hours (reading, writing and listening) and fifteen minutes oral expression, to three and a quarter hours and twenty minutes oral exam expression. Oral exams are sat individually with two examiners.
If you’re ready to invest in taking the official exam, Vamos offers DELE preparation courses for levels A1 through to C2.
Taking the course does not guarantee you will pass the exam, but we guarantee if you attend a minimum of 90% of classes included in our corresponding course levels and all classes in our DELE Preparation Course, you will pass the DELE exam at the Spanish level you have studied. If not we will give you a further 20 hours course time free and pay your re-examination fees.
Thoroughly enjoying. Plenty of time was dedicated to speaking in Spanish about your life (what you did on the weekend, what countries you have travelled to etc). This allowed you to learn words and phrases that were relevant to what you would discuss in real life.
Noelia has been fabulous and a great teacher! Due to work commitments, I have been absent more than I would wish but her teaching has pulled us through. I have been recommending to friends.
Es genial! Great teaching method, Carol is super dynamic and it’s great to have that level of interactivity in class. Really like it!
Andi is an excellent teacher – great at explaining things and helping students to focus on things they find difficult. Really friendly class and great opportunities to get involved.
Perfect preparation for travelling in Central/South America.
I have spent 8 years at university and have had hundreds of hours of teaching. After all this, Fiamma is the best teacher I have ever met. She could not have made the week any more enjoyable.
Good. Would recommend to others.
It’s always a pleasure to come to Spanish class at night. Andrea is really full of energy and the group is fun.
I thought it was great, well-faced and friendly. Can’t wait for level 4!
This was the highlight for every Tuesday/ Thursday. The teaching was fun and enthusiastic, so much so that I missed the England football match! I’ve noticed an improvement in my Spanish which is at a faster pace than anticipated.
