What is SIELE?
SIELE is the International Spanish Language Evaluation Service, a service for the evaluation and certification of Spanish language proficiency through electronic means aimed at students and professionals. It is promoted by the Instituto Cervantes, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires, which guarantees standards of quality and good practice in the preparation of the tests, and the use of different linguistic varieties of the Hispanic world.
It is designed for people who need a quick accreditation for admission to university or for applying for a job.
What is the SIELE exam like?
SIELE is a multi-level exam that certifies the knowledge of Spanish through a scale of points equivalent to the levels A1 to C1 of the CEFR.
It is taken on a computer and there is the possibility of taking the complete exam (SIELE GLOBAL, 4 tests) or partially in a combination of different tests.
The SIELE Global certificate is internationally recognised and is valid for 5 years.
Advantages of the SIELE exam
- Results are received within a maximum of 3 weeks.
- The candidate can choose the date and time of the exam.
- As the exam is based on a points scale, a level is always achieved.
Where do I take the exam?
AIP Language Institute is an examination centre. You can take the exam on the dates that we have already scheduled, but if you need to take it on another date, just let us know 15 days in advance and we will organise it for you.
The exam fees are between €55 and €155 depending on the modality you choose. Registration and payment of these fees is done through the official SIELE website.
What is DELE?
The DELE Spanish diplomas are official qualifications accrediting the degree of competence and mastery of the Spanish language, awarded by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. The DELE exams are designed to accredit all levels of Spanish from A1 to C2. Moreover, they are often a requirement to working or studying in Spain by many companies and universities.
AIP Language Institute provides you with the possibility to prepare for the DELE exam.
