Adult learning is never easy, balancing your professional career with family demands and trying to achieve your academic goals is possible. Our experienced educators can help you on specific areas, from business to conversational Spanish to formal DELE course preparation.

Spanish Academy uses the internationally recognised Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign language (DELE) system granted by Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports

The DELE system is broken down into 6 levels each covering different degrees of competency which ultimate results in “Mastery” at level C2

Our teachers are trained and certified to deliver courses in accordance with these modules which will prepare students to take the relevant certificates when they attain the minimum standards required.

Course Structure

All our Adult Spanish Course are based on Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF or CEFR) was put together by the Council of Europe as a way of standardising the levels of language exams in different regions. It is very widely used internationally and all important exams are mapped to the CEFR.

There are six levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.

Level A1 – This is the beginner’s level for students eager to learn Spanish. A topic example in this course covers common greetings. After completing this level, you’ll be able to understand basic phrases and terms used in day-to-day situations.

Level A2 – This course covers basic knowledge of the Spanish language. Topic examples include personal information, employment and local geography. When you complete Level A2, you’ll be able to articulate yourself in basic Spanish.

Level B1 – This level is also referred to as pre-intermediate. A course topic to expect will cover regular life encounters particularly at work or school. After this course, you’ll be able to communicate effectively in varied situations, especially while travelling. You’ll also be able to air opinions and provide relevant explanations for them.

Level B2 – Also known as the intermediate level, this course deals with complex texts. A topic example here is technical discussion. When you learn Spanish to this level, you’ll be able to speak the language with fluency. In addition, you’ll be capable of writing detailed and concise texts.

Level C1 – This is the upper intermediate level. Topics are varied in this level. They consist professional, academic and social contexts. Graduates can write detailed texts using well-organised patterns.

Level C2 – This is advanced Spanish. A topic to expect when you learn Spanish to this level is the reconstruction of arguments coherently. At the end of Level C2, students can summarise complex info, express themselves fluently and distinguish meanings in complex settings.

Spanish Academy Course Structure Vs. CEFR 

The DELE system is broken down 3 broad levels of competency with a total of 2 sub levels each.

“A” level competency standards cover a rudimentary introduction to Spanish and use of Spanish in every day situations. Focus is less technical and improvements can be seen fast. Contents focus on more breath and exposure rather than technical semantics.

“B” level competency standards cover the use of the language both, spoken and written in more depth. Focus will be on proper usage in different situations, effectively communicating more complex topics where Spanish is spoken, as well as being able to communicate and debate general topics. Progress may seem slower at this stage but ability upon achieving relevant competencies result in a richer understanding and appreciation for the language.

“C” level competency standards ultimately result in langue mastery. Students at this stage will be able to understand subtle nuances, spontaneously adapt to different and complex situation and be able to discuss and produce detailed text on technical and complex topics.
