Spanish language certifications you can acquire
The only certifications recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports are the DELE certifications (Diploma de Español Lengua Extranjera), which are internationally recognized at an academic and professional level in both the public and private sectors.
In many countries DELE have been selected by educational institutions and centers and have been included in their evaluation programmes. They can help you upgrade your career and gain access to education in Spain and the rest of the world.
In Greece, DELE exams take place five times a year: in April, May, July, October, and November. Examination Centers are located, besides Athens, in Greek cities with the largest Universities (Thessaloniki, Patra, Larisa, Ioannina).
the exams cost depends on the level and ranges between 75 – 145 euros.
