What does DELE mean?

DELE are official titles of Spanish language which are accredited by Cervantes Institute, on behalf of Education, Culture and Sport Minister of Spain. All of them are adapted to the standards of Common European Framework (CEFR).

In Delibes we have two special courses for the preparation of the DELE.

Basic D.E.L.E.
Superior D.E.L.E.

Each year we start the preparation for these two exams at the beginning of February and also at the beginning of September.

During the first two hours of this class, theoretical and practical aspects of grammar will be studied. In the 3rd and 4th hours work will be done on specific aspects of the exam: reading and listening comprehensions, personal interviews, written skills, essays, exercises on technical vocabulary.

Some time before the test, past exam papers will be worked on in class as well as reading and listening comprehensions, and interviews.

The D.E.L.E. (Diploma of Spanish as a foreign language) is the only official valid diploma recognized by the Spanish State. This exam can be taken in Spain or in Cervantes institutes and Spanish embassies in the rest of the world. It takes place twice a year in the middle of May and at the end of November, both basic and superior levels are taken during these months.

Students with a level below Intermediate must have had previous training before the beginning of the D.E.L.E. course to guarantee success in the exam. Students who miss two D.E.L.E. classes consecutively without being excused will automatically be transferred to a standard course A.

Gastronomy
Meals in bodega

We travel to small villages in the province of Salamanca. Why are they so special?

Probably because they are 15 meters under the ground and also because they are more than 500 years old. These wine cellars, which in the past were used to produce the most exquisite wine, are now restaurants in which every month we enjoy typical Castilian meals, such as roasted meat, salads, Spanish tortillas, typical cheese, bread and good red wine.

They also have options for vegetarians and for those with religious requirements.
