The Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language/Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE), an official degree that accredits the skill level and command of the Spanish language, is awarded by the Cervantes Institute at the behest of the Spanish Ministry of Educaton.

The Language Centre collaborates with the Cervantes Institute in the realisation of exams at 6 different levels of the DELE: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.  The DELE exams follow the guidelines established by the directives contained in the European Common Framework of Reference (ECFR) issued by the Council of Europe, which guarantees a practical means of establishing an objective international measure of each stage of learning and how to evaluate students’ abilities.

The DELE Exam Preparation Course uses practical methods to prepare students for the DELE exam and obtain certification from the Cervantes Institute. Practical activities and simulations are used to develop the four skills.  Students also learn strategies for making the most of their knowledge and manage their time in the exam setting.

Students passing this course will receive ECTS credits or elective credits from the University of Vigo.
