SIELE Exam Preparation Course in Barcelona

Students can prepare for the new SIELE Exam, or Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española, at Expanish as well as sit for the exam.

SIELE Exam Preparation in Barcelona will follow the same format and schedule as the DELE Preparation course, so we also recommend 3 weeks to fully prepare.

SIELE certifies the degree of proficiency for the Spanish language with four tests: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction, and spoken expression and interaction; the exam also takes as a reference the levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

This is a more dynamic exam created by the Cervantes Institute with the assistance associated universities around the world. Unlike the DELE, this exam can be taken at any time and is 100% online so students can sit for the exam at Expanish at the end of their SIELE Exam Preparation in Barcelona. The cost of the exam is not included in course fees.
