If you are learning Spanish and one of your goals is to pass a DELE Exam or if you have been preparing for this qualification and now you feel like you need a little help, we can help you.

What are DELE exams?

Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE). These are the official exams of the

Instituto Cervantes that accredit your knowledge and level of Spanish. If you want to work for a company in Spain, you will most likely be asked for this diploma. With this qualification you will be able to prove that you really know how to speak Spanish.

At The Language House Liverpool we will be holding a DELE mock-exam on:

Saturday 16th November 10:00h – 13:00h for levels A2 & B1

You will experience a full-length Spanish exam under realistic testing conditions and will be able to determine your strengths and weaknesses through a personalised score report.

There are different 6 CEFR levels for DELE exams:
