What is DELE?

DELE

Why is it a Valuable Qualification?

The Diploma de Español Lengua Extranjera (DELE) is an official qualification attesting to a command of the Spanish language issued by the Instituto Cervantes (the Government of Spain’s official organisation for promoting Spanish). It is recognised internationally and valid indefinitely. It can be obtained by sitting and passing the appropriate exam (there are three examination sessions each year).

DELE certificates

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

The University of León's Language Centre is an official test centre and offers its students various testing periods along with preparatory courses.
