Exams & Certificates
Our school works with an education system which contains regular internal exams to assess the individual progress of each student and to ensure the learning development. Our exam policy depends on the course attended. To monitor everyone’s progress, there are exams at the end of each level and little test after finishing a topic from the workbook. To progress to the next level students have to pass the corresponding exam. These tests and examinations take place during lesson hours at our school. Students completing their courses successfully will receive the S.L.C. language diploma certificate, that certifies the type of course, the number of hours studied, and the level obtained. This certificate is useful for students who want to study Spain and serves as an advantage for every CV and job application.
The evaluation varies depending on the level the student has. There are exams and final tasks at the end of each level to prove the student has acquired the necessary knowledge to study the following level.
In addition, remember that, as a school Accredited by the Instituto Cervantes, we offer you the option of registering and preparing for official DELE examinations (Official Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language), which prove the degree of competence and mastery of the Spanish language. These Diplomas are awarded by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education. https://examenes.cervantes.es
