DELE Spanish certification exams for young learners

The Instituto Cervantes offers two different DELE exams specifically for young learners:  the A1 exam and the A2/B1 exam. These exams:

  • Are geared towards students of Spanish between 11 and 17 years old (candidates aged 18 and above must register for the general exams).
  • Have been adapted to the specific environment, context, and situations of candidates in this age group.
  • Consist, as in the adult exams, of four tests: reading comprehension, oral comprehension, written expression and interaction, and oral expression and interaction.
  • Are, as with all DELE certificates, official certificates in Spanish, granted by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of Spain's Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
  • Enjoy international recognition and, once obtained, are valid indefinitely.
