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.
Very good style of teaching – the continuous interaction and repetition helps you learn quicker. Really enjoyed the course.
The program as expected contained all the elements needed when starting with a language. Andrea did a great job of doing as much as possible within every lesson; I would recommend this course with her.
Very pleased, I feel I have made further progress in my Spanish studies
