Spanish Credentialing

The DELE exam, or Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera, is the official exam in Spanish proficiency. The internationally recognized exams offer an opportunity to hold a certificate indicating your progress in Spanish proficiency in the areas of speaking, reading, writing, and listening.  A DELE exam certificate can be used towards application at a foreign university, in addition to being a useful tool on your resume and enhancing job opportunities. Students at Edmonton Public Schools are invited to register and write the DELE. 

We are changing the way we offer the Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) exam in our District. We will host two different exam writing periods in 2017-18. Teachers with students interested in writing the DELE exam are invited to register with the following details. Students and teachers interested in C1 and C2 are advised the exams are available but will not be offered through the District this year.
