The DELE Diplomas are internationally recognized, and enjoy great prestige not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce.
In many countries, the DELE have been adopted by departments of education and official institutions of learning as a complement to their own  assessment programmes. They are ideal for furthering your career and access to education, both in Spain and in other countries where the examinations are given.
As part of the European Common Framework, the DELE can be recognized in the European Union and in other countries. According to the European Common Framework the DELE has six levels, starting from A1 (beginner) and up to C2 (expert).

  1. When registering, candidates must prove that they are citizens of a country in which Spanish is not an official language (for instance with a copy of their passport).
  2. Citizens of Spanish-speaking countries resident in countries where Spanish is not an official language may register if they meet at least two of the following conditions:
  • Spanish is not the mother tongue of one of the candidate's parents.
  • Spanish was not the first language learned.
  • Spanish is not the candidate's usual language of communication.
  • The candidate has not studied all or part of his/her primary or secondary education in Spanish.
