What is the DELE exam?
DELE stands for Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language). It is an official diploma with various levels of language proficiency and is issued by the Instituto Cervantes (Cervantes Institute) on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education.
There are six levels of the DELE exam (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2)
Diploma of Spanish: Level A1 (Beginner)
certifies that the learner has attained a linguistic level in which he/she can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed to satisfy specific needs. You can introduce yourself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know, and things you have. You can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
Diploma of Spanish: Level A2 (Elementary)
certifies that you can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance. You can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. You can describe in simple terms aspects of your background, the immediate environment, and matters of immediate interest.
Diploma of Spanish: Level B1 (Intermediate)
certifies an independent learning level. You can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered at work, school, leisure, etc. You can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling; you can produce simple connected texts on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. You can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes, ambitions and briefly communicate about plans.
Diploma of Spanish: Level B2 (Upper intermediate)
You can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in your field of specialisation. You can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. You can produce clear, detailed texts on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue under circumstances that do not require the use of specific language.
Diploma of Spanish: Level C1
certifies the learner’s ability to understand a wide range of extensive demanding texts and to recognise implicit meaning. You can express yourself ﬂuently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. You can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. You can produce clear, well-structured, detailed texts on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors, and cohesive devices.
Diploma of Spanish: Level C2 (Proficient)
You can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. You can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, you are able to cope in complex situations which require a high language level and a knowledge of cultural habits and meanings. You can express yourself spontaneously, very fluently, and precisely.
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment (CEFR) is exactly what it says: a framework of reference. It was designed to provide a transparent, coherent basis for the elaboration of language syllabuses and curriculum guidelines, the design of teaching and learning materials, and the assessment of foreign language proficiency
