DELE Preparation: a teacher’s view


My name is Blanca, I’m a DELE preparation teacher at AIL Madrid, and I’m here to tell you all about our DELE Exam Preparation Course.

First of all, what is the DELE? The DELE (or Diploma de Español Como Lengua Extranjera) is one of two internationally recognized official qualifications for Spanish as a second language. So, if you need to certify your Spanish skills for studies/employment or you simply love Spanish then this is the course for you.

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 DELE exam preparation: we review past DELE exam papers, learn exam techniques, improve answering styles, and practice specific examination tasks to develop all the linguistic skills needed for 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 hugely motivating: most of the time it doesn't even feel like a class. It’s more like being part of a group project with friends (our class sizes are tiny - max. 8 students) on a common journey towards a single 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.
