Official DELE exams preparation: Instituto Cervantes

This course is for students who need specific preparation to obtain the Official certification of Spanish as a Foreign Language.

Our DELE exam preparation courses are designed to give you everything you need to achieve success. My collaborators and I are official examiners of the Cervantes Institute, so we understand the level of perfection that is required in these exams. We will also be with you throughout the process, from when you start to prepare until the day of the exam to help and support you with everything you need to succeed.

The DELEs are divided into six levels depending on the language level:

DELE A1

This Diploma is the first of the six learning levels proposed in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe.

This Diploma accredits that students will be able to use elementary Spanish language in communication situations involving immediate needs or very common everyday matters.

DELE A2

Level-A2 DELE examination (DELE A2) is the second step after accessing the language of Spanish-speaking countries.

This Diploma accredits that students can understand commonly-used everyday phrases and expressions related to areas of experience especially relevant to them (basic information about themselves and their families, shopping, places of interest, occupations, etc.).

DELE B1

The Diploma in Spanish (DELE) level B1 accredits language users’ capacity to:

  • Understand the gist of clear texts, in standard language, if they involve well-known topics related to work, studies or leisure.
  • Deal with most of the situations that may arise during a trip to where the language is used.
  • Produce simple, coherent texts about well-known topics or issues of personal interest.
  • Describe experiences, events, wishes and hopes, as well as briefly justify opinions or explain plans.

DELE B2

The Diploma in Spanish (DELE) level B2 accredits language users’ capacity to:

  • Understand the gist of complex texts about concrete or abstract themes, even technical texts, provided that they are within the candidates’ field of specialization.
  • Interact with native speakers with sufficient fluency and spontaneity, so that communication does not constitute an effort for the interlocutors.
  • Produce clear and detailed texts about diverse topics, as well as defend a point of view on general topics, stating the pros and cons of the different options.

DELE C1

The DELE C1 guarantees that the progress of the student in the language has been a success, and certifies more than an advanced level of Spanish.

This diploma certifies sufficient linguistic competence to:

  • Understand a wide variety of long, quite demanding texts, as well as recognise implicit meanings in them.
  • Express themselves fluently and spontaneously, without any obvious effort to find the right words.
  • Use the language flexibly and effectively for social, academic, and professional purposes.
  • And be able to produce clear, well-structured, detailed texts on topics having a certain level of complexity, with correct use of mechanisms for organizing and articulating a cohesive text.

DELE C2

DELE C2 is the highest and most advanced of the six learning levels established in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It certifies the level of Mastery.

The DELE C2 certifies sufficient linguistic competence to perfectly handle any kind of situation, proving a spontaneous capacity of adaptation to any context, with a great deal of semantic and grammatical precision. The language users express themselves fluently.

Our Happy Students

My wife and I took private classes with Raquel (The owner/teacher) and really loved her and her place. The school is very well located in the old city center just by Plaza de la Reina. Raquel is a great teacher that is willing to adapt to her students’ needs. We had no interest in passing exams for a specific level so we focused on speaking and understanding day to day Spanish in stead of focusing on a book. Raquel speaks English which was helpful if we really got stuck and did not understand the explanations in Spanish, but she makes sure to do 99% of the class in Spanish. She is also very flexible regarding schedules so we could choose our dates/times a few weeks in advance so it suited our needs 😊 We highly recommend her school to anyone wanting a great Spanish learning experience Heiðrekur and Hildur , IcelandHeidrekur Gudmundsson
I have had one-on-one conversation lessons with Raquel, either once or twice per week, for the past four months. I enjoy working with her and learning from her. Raquel is smart, thoughtful and well-educated, adding to the value that I receive from the lessons. She is flexible in her approach and encourages me to introduce topics of my own particular interest. Raquel is a very patient teacher and has a good manner in the way she corrects the ways in which I mangle her beautiful language. Under her tutelage, my grammar and vocabulary have improved and I have gained confidence in speaking Spanish. I recommend Raquel highly to anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort to learn. I look forward to continuing to work with her.Larry Ellis
Raquel es una profesora excelente. Gracias a ella, he aprendido castellano con rapidez y entreteniendome. La recomiendo a cualquiera. (Translated by Google) Raquel is an excellent teacher. Thanks to her, I have learned Spanish quickly and entertaining myself. I recommend her to anyone.Ilaria Moraschini
I had one to one lessons for beginners with Raquel while in Valencia. I am a foreign language teacher myself (English) and was impressed with Raquel´s teaching method and ability. I even stopped thinking in English and started answering without translating to myself, which is the best way to learn a language but not usually what beginners are able do do easily. My 13 year old son also had one to one lessons as he needs Spanish for school and for the first time said he really enjoyed Spanish lessons and that the hour went so quickly. In April we will return and take more lessons with Raquel.animal lover
We took Spanish classes with Raquel during our stay in Valencia and absolutely loved it. Thanks to the programme she specifically compiled for us, we learnt exactly what we came for. Raquel explains well and is very engaging, highly recommended.Bart Coenegrachts
I have been studying Spanish online with Raquel from Spanish & Valencia language school since October 2020 and I have a sufficient progress in it, especially in speaking part. I generally consider the classes that I take with Raquel to be effective and funny at the same time. I would definitely recommend Spanish & Valencia with Raquel for those who are looking for Spanish language courses in Valencia.Amina O
