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

Raquel is an amazing Spanish tutor, I'm so happy I decided to choose her as a tutor. She is patient, kind and adapts her lessons to suit your style and ability, which greatly helped me in becoming more confident in forming and speaking accurate Spanish sentences. I'm looking forward to travelling back to Valencia to attend more of her lessons! Gracias Raquel!Ruby
After first trying larger group classes in Valencia and not making significant progress, my wife and I started classes with Raquel. Her personal and directive approach meant we both progresses quickly and our confidence increased significantly opening up the great city of Valencia to us. Being a teacher myself, I really appreciated Raquel varied style of learning which kept lessons engaging and non repetitive. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their Spanish quickly (& cheaplyRobert Pickford
I really enjoyed my Spanish classes with Raquel! I would definitely recommend her. She is a good teacher, she is really patient and her classes are a lot of fun. Next to learning Spanish, we also had a lot of conversations about culture, politics and economics. Raquel, thanks a lot for all the classes, nice chats and coffees on the terrace under the Valencian sun.Roos Post
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
Spanish lessons from Raquel are always engaging and educational. We have had private lessons for almost a year and that has helped us tremendously. She also organizes fun optional activities with other students outside of class. Thanks Raquel and see you soon!D. Booij
I took classes with Raquel for 3 months after moving to Valencia and would highly recommend her. She is extremely patient, supportive and very good at explaining complex points in a straightforward way while also drawing out conversation in Spanish. Classes with her were a pleasure and I learned so much - thank you so much Raquel!!John C
