DELE: International Spanish Exams

The DELE diplomas are official and international accreditations of a person’s degree of proficiency in Spanish.  They are granted by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education.  The diplomas can be obtained by completing an examination that tests the candidate’s ability to read, write, speak and understand spoken Spanish, according to internationally standardized levels of competence established by the Council of Europe in the Common Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).  Examinations are held three times a year -  in April, May and November - in more than 500 centres around the world, of which 17 are in Canada.  Dalhousie University offers the examination once a year in April.
