D.E.L.E. Spanish as a Foreign Language Diploma

The Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) issued by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry for Education.

  • The Spanish Diploma Level A1 (Starter level). This qualification attests to sufficient linguistic ability for a very basic range of the most common simple expressions used in the Spanish-speaking world and in order to satisfy immediate needs.
  • The Spanish Diploma Level A2. This qualification attests to sufficient linguistic ability to understand sentences and frequently used daily expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (ex. basic information about yourself and your family, shopping, local geography, employment, etc.).
  • The Spanish Diploma Level B1 (Beginner level). This qualification attests to sufficient linguistic ability for understanding and responding appropriately in most normal day-to-day situations and for expressing desires and needs in a basic way.
  • The Spanish Diploma Level B2 (Intermediate level). This qualification validates sufficient linguistic ability to get by in average day-to-day situations in normal communication circumstances that do not require specialized use of the language.
  • The Spanish Diploma Level C1. At this level, users are expected to be able to use the structures of a language with ease and fluency. Users are able to adapt their language use to a variety of social situations, and express opinions and take part in discussions and arguments in a culturally acceptable way.
  • The Spanish Diploma Level C2 (Proficiency level). This qualification accredits the necessary linguistic competence to integrate in situations requiring an advanced use of the language and knowledge of the cultural customs embedded within it.
