DELE 2013


DELE Exam dates in 2013
Category: General

In our commitment to always offer the most up-to-date information possible, today we would like to refer to an important topic: obtaining an official diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language requires proper planning and organization prior to taking the exam. This valuable certificate has permanent validity and certifies communication and linguistic qualifications by the Cervantes Institute and the Ministry of Spanish Culture and Education.
As we explained in an announcement made here last September 19th, the test can usually be taken on dates stipulated by two regular official calls for the exam to be given in May and November, and on an extra exam date which is also commonly offered in August, when the test is only given in certain locations as deemed necessary.
We now have the dates on which you can take the DELE exam in 2012, and we also have the registration dates for those exams, which gives you plenty of time to plan ahead so you can properly prepare yourself for the test.
For next year, the Cervantes Institute has set three examining periods:
- May (the test will be given on the 24th and the 25th and you can register to take the exam on these dates beginning February 25th until April 19th both dates included)
- August (the test will be given on the 23rd and you can register to take the exam on this date from July 1st until July 26th, both dates included).
- November (the test will be given on the 22nd and the 23rd and you can register to take the test on these dates from September 16th to October 18th, both dates included)
The exam prices have not been made available yet. It is also still not clear if testing locations for the August exam date will be limited, as they have been in recent years, in which the test for the extra call to take the exam is given in August, but only in certain examining centers as deemed necessary. The May and November testing dates however are open to all.
We will post this information as soon as it is made available, as part of our continued effort to offer the most clear and concise information possible.
We stand by our recommendation to take a DELE preparation course, as this guarantees you the highest percentage of possibilities to pass the test. don Quijote is offering an excellent opportunity to take one of these courses with a special offer. don Quijote is the most prestigious organization in the business of teaching Spanish as a foreign language, and they have a long tradition, extensive experience and a high success rate in preparing for these types of exams.
If you sign up for any 2013 DELE preparation course, and you book before October 29, 2012, you'll only pay the 2012 price of the course. This offer is also good on the rest of don Quijote's courses.
