The 'Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera' (DELE) are
qualifications designed for foreign learners of Spanish, and recognised
by the Ministry of Education and Science.
NOTE: These Spanish language exams have been replaced with new DELE Diplomas, which fit in with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe. This page is now for reference only.
There are three exams, the Certificado Inicial, the Diploma Básico de
Español and the Diploma Superior de Español.
