What is the SIELE exam?

The SIELE exam is a distinguished and globally-acknowledged certificate of your linguistic capabilities of the Spanish language.

It stands for Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española – International Service for the Assessment of the Spanish Language- and it is promoted by the Instituto Cervantes making it widely recognized and respected in both academic and professional contexts.

Designed with a multifaceted approach to test reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills, the SIELE exam is not just a test but a gateway to unlocking endless opportunities in your academic and professional life.

Structure of the Exam & Benefits

The SIELE exam has been structured to comprehensively evaluate your proficiency in the Spanish language in the four key skills:

    • reading comprehension
    • listening comprehension
    • written expression and interaction
    • and oral expression and interaction.

The exam is administered online and consists of several tests, often called “papers”, each corresponding to a linguistic skill.

One of its most notable features is that it allows you to choose whether to take all four tests together (SIELE Global) or select individual ones according to your needs.
