SIELE / DELE
Both tests recognize at an international level, the knowledge of the Spanish language, through different tests: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction and oral expression and interaction.
DELE certificates are given by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport; they do not have an expiry date. They offer examinations from level A1 to C2 of the MCER and you must decide in advance which one you want to take. Each exam consists of four tests, which are taken on paper, in an examination centre and in certain fixed dates.
SIELE qualifications are promoted by the Instituto Cervantes, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad de Buenos Aires, and offers the possibility of taking a complete exam with four tests (Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Written Expression and Interaction and Oral Expression and Interaction) or just a few if you wish to accredit partial competences of the language. Both the examination and the formalities are carried out electronically, in an examination centre and by means of an appointment system. It expires after 5 years.
These certifications are guaranteed by prestigious institutions, which guarantee their standards of quality and good practices.
