According to Busuu, Spanish is the fourth most spoken language in the world, behind English, Mandarin, and Hindi. In the United States, it’s the second most spoken. Already widely spoken, many non-native speakers continue to learn to speak in this wonderful language. One way people can work towards fluency is by becoming DELE certified, as it’s one of the best ways to formally identify individual proficiency in the Spanish language. As the only DELE examination center in the State of Arizona, the International School of Arizona knows the level of importance this certificate can have on an individual. Read below what the DELE test can mean for you.
What is the DELE Test?
The purpose of the DELE test is to formally demonstrate the ability to communicate in Spanish. Anybody who is a citizen of a non-Spanish speaking country can take the exam to formally identify their Spanish fluency. In addition, citizens who live in Spanish speaking countries can take the exam, but only if:
- Spanish is not the mother tongue of his/her parents
- Spanish is not the first language he/she learned
- Spanish is not his/her habitual language used for communicating
- He/she hasn’t studied the language in the total or part of their primary or secondary education
Why Students Should Take the DELE Test
As one of the most prestigious language certifications, obtaining it helps prove Spanish fluency. Furthermore, those who obtain the certificate can find value in the fact that it is internationally recognized across the Spanish-speaking world. It’s highly regarded in the business and commercial world, and as a result, it makes for an excellent addition to one’s resume.
Moreover, the DELE certification is recognized among private and public schools. Much like people who are looking to work in Spanish-speaking countries, obtaining a certificate is beneficial for students looking to study abroad.
