We have specialised material, including past exam papers, and our teachers will help you with practical advice. Another advantage is that you can take the exam in Bilbao.

There are now six different levels for the exam - A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 y C2 - and there are three opportunities per year to take the exam in Spain - in May, August and November. Please contact us for more information about enrollment.

The DELE is an official qualification, graded on competence and mastery of the Spanish language, and is offered by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Social Politics and Sport.

The Level A1 DELE, Diploma in Spanish (beginning with DELE) is a qualification which is equivalent to level A1, the first of the six levels of learning set out by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This qualification accredits that students will be able to use elementary language in communication situations involving immediate needs or very common everyday matters.

The Level A2 DELE, Diploma in Spanish (now you can take the lead forward) certifies that the candidate is capable of understanding everyday phrases and expressions related to personal experiences (basic information about family, shopping, places of interest, jobs etc.)

The Level B1 DELE (formerly beginner), certifies that candidates already have a level of Spanish which places them at a slightly higher than beginner level.

Level-B1 DELE examination (DELE B1 for Schools) is the Diploma that certifies the linguistic competence in Spanish of school pupils between the ages of 12 and 17; it is integrated into formal education. It certifies level B1, but its contents have been adapted for school pupils.

The Level B2 DELE (show what you know) provides candidates with the certainty that they have reached an advanced level of Spanish which enables them to communicate successfully both orally and in writing.

The Level C1 DELE (it's time to move up) guarantees that the progress of the student in the language has been a success, and certifies more than an advanced level of Spanish.

The Level C2 DELE (make it to the top) certifies sufficient linguistic competence to perfectly handle any kind of situation, proving a spontaneous capacity of adaptation to any context, with a great deal of semantic and grammatical precision. The language users express themselves fluently, with a high degree of specialization and complexity.

Instituto Hemingway Dele Preparation Spanish Course, Bilbao, Spain Reviews

I can´t wait to return

At Instituto Hemingway Spanish School I have learned a lot! Only two weeks of classes and I started to speak and understand better and better. The lessons were full of speaking, but listening, writing and reading too. There is a high quality of the teachers which are very patient and understand every level student they get. During the classes you can speak with people all around the world about interesting topics.
There are many extra activities where you can learn something about Spanish culture and to get know Bilbao more. All the people from the school will become your friends and are always ready to accompany you to go to the beach or to go out at the evening or to Fiesta!
Also the location of the school is great - at the city center, close to everyone.
I like that the lessons we needed to speak a lot, we worked really hard but also sang songs, watched videos, played games and also visited museums and made a city tour..
If there are any negatives? I do not thing so :-))
