DELE Exam Preparation in Madrid

Juan Luis, Spanish teacher at AIL Madrid, talks about the DELE Exam Preparation

¡Hola a todos! My name is Juan Luis and I am here to tell you a bit more about our DELE Exam Preparation Course.

First of all, what is the DELE?  The DELE (or Diploma de Español Como Lengua Extranjera) is the internationally recognised official qualification of Spanish as a second language. So, if you need to certify your Spanish skills for studies/employment or you just love Spanish, come and sign up!

I have been an official DELE examiner for the last 7 years, I have a blog dedicated to DELE, and I live and breathe DELE, so yes: I am a proud DELE geek and love sharing my knowledge with passionate and enthusiastic students! My classes 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 develope all the linguistic skills tested during the exam. I also share tons of insider tips to make sure you get the best preparation possible!

The course is demanding and you must be prepared to work hard. That said, it´s also fun and motivating: most of the time it doesn´t even feel like a class, and is more like being part of a group project with friends (our class sizes are tiny - max. 5 students) on a common journey towards one goal: passing the DELE exam!

We offer three different types of DELE preparation courses, depending on your availability, so there is sure to be one that fits your timetable.
