Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera

The DELE Diplomas are internationally recognized, and enjoy great prestige not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce.

In many countries, the DELE have been adopted by departments of education and official institutions of learning as a complement to their own assessment programs. They are ideal for furthering your career and access to education, both in Spain and in other countries where the examinations are given.

Since 2012, the CECM was integrated at DELE’s examination centers. Our school has a staff of certified teachers as Cervantes’ examiners; the same recognition also supports the preparation of candidates to obtain the diploma.
