Useful Info on DELE

DELE stands for Spanish Diploma as a Foreign Language (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera) and the organization in charge of the DELE Spanish language exams is the Instituto Cervates (the official governmental organization who promotes the Spanish language) although in practise the exam is set and corrected by Salamanca University.

The DELE Spanish language exam is arranged twice a year (in May and in November) and in some places also in August. The DELE Spanish language test can be taken in nearly all major Spanish Universities (see locations below) and can also be taken some places abroad (contact the nearest Spanish consulate for further information).

To register for the exam you will have to fill in a registration form (which can be obtained at the universities who arrange the exams), pay the fee for taking the exam (which in Spain is approx. 95€ for the basic level, 115€ for the intermediate level and 135€ for the advanced level) and provide documentation that you are not a citizens in a Spanish speaking country (photocopy + original ID).
The above documentation has to be handed to the school where you would like to study Spanish in Spain and or take the exam about one to two months before the exam. The school will then provide you with documentation as proof of your participation, which you have to bring to the exam.

The DELE Exam

There are three different options available at the DELE Spanish language exam depending on the level of the students who want to study Spanish in Spain.
The first level is the basic level (Nivel Inicial) which is for students with an elementary knowledge of Spanish. This level is for students who have studied Spanish language for a short period, with a basic understanding of the Spanish grammar and who understand and communicate in situations that requires minimal Spanish language skills.
The second Spanish language course level is the intermediate (Nivel Intermedio) which is for students who are able to understand and speak the Spanish language in everyday situations and who have a good knowledge of the Spanish grammar.
The third level is the advanced (Nivel Superior) and is for students who have studied Spanish for a longer period and have a full understanding of the language and the Spanish culture and who are able to communicate in an advanced level in all situations.

The Spanish language exam for all levels consists of 5 different parts where the main difference of the 3 levels is the difficulty and the time available for each part.

The first part is to examine the Spanish language reading comprehension of the student and consists of a Spanish text which will vary in length and difficulty. After having read the Spanish text the student has to answer a number of multiple choice questions about the text.

The second part is to test the Spanish language written skills of the student and consists of writing a small text or an essay depending on the Spanish level.

The third part is a Spanish language listening exercise where the student has to answer a number of questions after having heard a Spanish text.

The fourth part is to test the students' knowledge of Spanish language grammar and Spanish language vocabulary and consists of multiple choice questions and filling out blank spaces with appropriate Spanish words.

The fifth part is the oral test where the student has to talk to a Spanish examiner for about 10-15 minutes about a picture or a specific topic.
