We provide private lessons that focus exclusively on the DELE exam preparation: we review past DELE exam papers, learn exam techniques and improve answering style, and practice specific examination tasks to develop all the linguistic skills tested during the exam.
The DELE Spanish Exams are issued by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Social Policies and Sports. The DELE Diplomas are the single most important official qualifications that provide accreditation for the different levels of competence and command of the Spanish language.
The Instituto Cervantes is the official governmental organization who promotes the Spanish language and is in charge of the DELE Spanish language exams.
Below you can see the average amount of hours for each level which is the time of instruction needed to complete each level according to CEF.
A1: 60 hours/A2: 60 hours.
B1: 60 hours/B2: 100 hours.
C1: 100 hours/C2: 400 hours.
In other words, if you are at Spanish beginner level and want to just take the A1 exam, you will need 60 hours of instruction, for A2 you will need 120 hours and so on.
Instead if you are already at level A2 and want to take the B1 DELE exam, you will need only an extra 60 hours of instruction.
