The Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE) are official qualifications accrediting levels of competence and proficiency of the Spanish language. They are internationally famous and highly regarded. They are performed at all leves of the Common European Framework Reference (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2). Those Diplomas are internationally recognized and hold great prestige.
During two decades, Cursos Internacionales of the University of Salamanca is the institution responsible on the one hand, the development and production of test materials needed for the DELE and, on the other hand, the overall evaluation of all tests and examinations performed worldwide in each of the calls on behalf of the Ministry of Education, organized by the Instituto Cervantes.Both tasks are carried out by Cursos Internacionales, by a team of teachers specializing in applied linguistics, assessment and psychometrics.
As an official examination centre approved by Instituto Cervantes, University of Salamanca also holds the DELE examination sessions.
