The Diplomas in Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE), granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education of Spain, are official certificates that indicate the degree of competence and mastery of Spanish. The DELE examinations have been designed following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe. Accordingly, there are six levels of competence: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. The examination provides for all the different variants of the Spanish language. At the moment, the B1 "Escolar" is the only model designed for younger students.
In May 2010, after an agreement was signed between the Spanish Ministry of Education and the Instituto Cervantes, the B1 "Escolar" was offered, for the first time, free of charge, to High School Grade 12 students. The results obtained in 2010 and 2011 appear in the reports below.
