Spanish DELE Exams


The Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE) is the official accreditation of proficiency and mastery of the Spanish language, awarded by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education of Spain. It covers all levels of the CEFR (DELE A1, DELE A2, DELE B1, DELE B2, DELE C1, DELE C2). It is the only official Spanish language certification. To obtain Spanish nationality, it is necessary to pass the DELE A2 or higher (except for Spanish speakers).

IDEALOG is an authorized DELE examination center (FEDELE IDEALOG) and organizes all DELE A2 and DELE A2 N/A sessions, as well as some DELE B1, DELE B2, DELE C1, and DELE C2 sessions.

You can register for DELE exams and CCSE (Constitutional and Sociocultural Knowledge of Spain) exams for nationality at Fedele Idealog Castelldefels through the website

The DELE A2 Non-Literate candidates must register for DELE A2 N/A.

The exam consists of different parts:

Written exam: Reading comprehension – Written expression and interaction – Listening comprehension

Oral exam: Spoken expression and interaction (The oral exam may take place on different days from the written exam, so it is very important to check if you have received the convocation from Idealog indicating the day and time of your oral test).

DELE A2 Non-Literate candidates are exempt from the written exams. They must register for the DELE A2 N/A sessions.
