Spanish Certification: The key to Success
In an increasingly interconnected global context, official certification in Spanish, such as those obtained through the SIELE and DELE exams, is becoming an essential tool for personal and professional development. In this article, we will explain the importance of these certifications and how they can catapult your opportunities towards a new horizon.
SIELE and DELE: Your passports to the world of Spanish
Spanish stands out as the second most spoken language in the world by number of native speakers, with an impressive 493 million people. Moreover, when considering the sum of native speakers, people with limited proficiency and learners of the language, it ranks third worldwide, with more than 591 million people using the language. This relevance also extends to the digital sphere, where this language is positioned as the third most used language on the Internet.
In this way, we understand that mastery of Spanish is a bridge to global opportunities, for which the official SIELE and DELE certifications, internationally recognised and endorsed by prestigious institutions such as the Instituto Cervantes, are the passport.
The SIELE (Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española) and the DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) are exams designed to assess and certify your level of proficiency in Spanish.
On the one hand, SIELE is a modular test that allows you to select the combinations of language skills (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction, and oral expression and interaction) that you wish to assess. This makes SIELE highly customisable and suitable for different purposes and candidate profiles.
The DELE, on the other hand, assesses all these language skills in a single exam, awarding a diploma certifying your overall level of Spanish, from beginner (A1) to mastery (C2). Both exams are designed to reflect the actual use of Spanish in a variety of situations, ensuring that your certification demonstrates practical and versatile language proficiency.
SIELE: Flexibility and speed in certification
If you are looking for a flexible and fast assessment, choose SIELE. This exam, adaptable to your specific needs, allows you to assess the language skills of your choice and obtain results in a short period of time. Backed by the Instituto Cervantes, UNAM, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires, SIELE is ideal for both students and professionals.
DELE: The official recognition of your Spanish language proficiency
For those seeking in-depth official recognition of their level of Spanish, the DELE, offered by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, is the perfect choice. Unlike SIELE, the DELE assesses all language skills together, offering results such as “apto” (pass) or “no apto” (fail) at the level you have opted for (from A1 to C2).
