Spanish and DELE in Peru

Spanish and DELE in Peru

If you are serious about learning Spanish, we suggest sitting the DELE exam. The DELE (Diploma of Spanish as a Second Language) is an internationally recognized qualification for the Spanish language, thus, an essential element on your Curriculum Vitae (resume). In addition, this certification has high academic value for university entrance assessments that require an objectively evaluated level of Spanish. An alternative for the DELE exam is the SIELE test, which some employers require.

During our Spanish & DELE courses in Cusco, we ensure that you are well prepared for the exam. The teachers assist in weak areas and consolidate the foundations of your current knowledge. Each morning you will attend Spanish group classes at your level together with other students. In the afternoons, you will have individual Spanish lessons with one of our qualified teachers who have extensive experience preparing students for the DELE exams. Together, you will improve oral and written skills, grammar, pronunciation, and general understanding, focusing on strengthening your weaker points.

Our Spanish & DELE course in Peru will significantly increase your chances of passing the DELE exam. Taking a DELE exam is always a bit tricky, even if your Spanish is up to the level you are being tested for. Practice is king. The AMAUTA Spanish & DELE course starts every Monday throughout the year.

What is DELE

The “Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera” (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language in English), or just DELE, is an official diploma issued by the Spanish Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education.

To take the official DELE examination, you must enrol four or more weeks in advance. The test can be completed in Lima, Buenos Aires or many other locations worldwide. Unfortunately, AMAUTA is not an official DELE center. However, when you participate in our Spanish for DELE preparation course, we can assist your registration (online).

An alternative for the DELE exams for those looking for a more accessible (and cheaper) alternative with an official value is the SIELE test. SIELE is the Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española and it certifies electronically the command of the Spanish language proficiency for students and professionals. Instituto Cervantes also accredits it. (read more below).

Levels DELE exams

There is a different DELE exam for each one of the levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): DELE A1, DELE A2, DELE B1, DELE B2, DELE C1, DELE C2.

Each level has a different format, but they all test the four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The examinations normally take place three times a year: in April/May, July/August and November. The inscription is online and the cost varies between $ 170 - $ 280 (to be paid directly upon registering online to the Instituto Cervantes).

Siele Test

SIELE certifies the degree of proficiency for the Spanish language with four tests: Reading and listening comprehension, Written expression and interaction and Spoken expression and interaction. The main goal of the SIELE test is to determine your current level. You can test each of the four skills independently or take the SIELE Global test, which includes the four skills. SIELE is, therefore, a single multilevel exam. Your SIELE certificate will consist of a score from 0 to 1000, which is associated with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels. SIELE is recognized by leading international education and world language organizations.

The entire exam (SIELE Global) costs $175; the smaller exams vary between $85 and $90. Prices will differ if you take the exam online, in Europe, or the United States.
