Expanish’s DELE Preparation Course in Buenos Aires will help you take the DELE exam with confidence.

What is the DELE Exam?

You can take the DELE exam here in Buenos Aires and we can help. The DELE (Diploma de Español Lengua Extranjera, or Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) is a linguistic proficiency exam that accredits your competency in the Spanish language. This internationally-recognized accreditation is granted by the Cervantes Institute (Spain). The exam is only offered on specific dates throughout the year and can only be administered by an institution accredited through the Cervantes Institute.

You will need to sign up in advance for your specific language level and we highly recommend at least two to three weeks of DELE Prep before your exam date.
