Spanish – Instituto Cervantes y Universidad de Salamanca

The Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) is the responsibility of the Instituto Cervantes, which develops academic and administrative policy, acts as Central Examination Board, and issues the certifications on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education.

The Instituto Cervantes, a state organisation, promotes Spanish language and culture abroad, and is responsible for the administration of the tests worldwide. The University of Salamanca has an international scientific and intellectual reputation partly due in part to its work in the promotion of Spanish language and culture, and its teaching and research activities in the field of Spanish as a Foreign Language.  For more information, visit -
