Recognition of DELE diplomas
DELE diplomas are internationally recognized and have a high reputation, not only between public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and among chambers of commerce. They are an official guarantee in the evaluation and certification of the Spanish language competence.

In many countries, DELEs have been adopted by educational authorities and regulated educational institutions as a complement to their own evaluation programs.

They are suitable for facilitating labor promotion and access to education in Spain and in other countries where tests are carried out.

In Spain, DELE diplomas are recognized by national, regional and local institutions and bodies.
