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.
That was great! Thank you very much!
Another productive and interesting 10 weeks of Spanish. Enjoying it very much. Always look forward to my class on Saturday. Thank you again, Amaya, for making it so interesting and thank you, Russell, for having this centre.
Maria has been a fantastic teacher, always energetic and positive. The pace of the course is good. Very happy with Maria and the course overall and I will be coming back for level 2.
Really fun! The teacher was very helpful and explained difficult subjects in an interesting way which made it easy to understand.
Really enjoyed this course (and level 1)! Love Ana 🙂 I think I’m progressing well
Sandra is an excellent teacher. I had a great time
It’s an amazing program, and involves great writing, verbal skills. I received more than expected. Most interesting is class review and funny exercises by email. Amaya’s teaching methodology is great. She makes you grasp things very smoothly. Also, the way she correlates the phrases with English and exercises we do with her.
I am enjoying the course and am determined to continue to complete all levels. I am confident that next time when I visit Spain, I will be able to speak and understand local people, which is a great achievement. Amaya Alonso, my teacher, is an amazing person, a very gifted professional. Once again, thank you Russell for keeping this school running.
Excellent, great mixture of exercises and learning methods. Andrea is engaging and creates a great teaching environment!!
