Consider first your language skills before selecting the DELE course. It is advised to have a higher skill level than the DELE course you are choosing. The objective of the preparation course is not to improve your language level but rather to prepare you to obtain a certificate for your current language level.

When in doubt of your level, take our Online Language Test or the Cervantes Institute Online Test.
