DELE preparation courses

DELE diplomas are the official Spanish qualifications certifying the degree of competence and mastery of Spanish and are granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain.

They were created in 1988 by the Ministry of Education (RD 826/88) and provide for all the different variants of the Spanish language.


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, which are integrated into the CEFR levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2
