The SIELE exam certifies the degree of proficiency in Spanish through electronic media. It is recognized by plenty of Universities, companies and organizations around the world. Therefore, it is aimed at students and professionals from five continents. Promoted by the Cervantes Institute, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires, the exam guarantees standards of quality and good practices in the preparation of the tests. Besides, it assures the incorporation of all linguistic variations of Spanish.
SIELE certifies the degree of competence in the Spanish language through four tests: Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Written Expression and Interaction and Oral Expression and Interaction.
In order to obtain the SIELE certificate, you must take a single multilevel exam. It is a document that includes a score from 0 to 1000, which is the result of the sum of your scores from each of its four tests. Your final score will be associated with the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
But besides the most comprehensive SIELE Global modality, you can opt for any of the other five exam modalities. These consist on different combinations of the various tests:
- S1: Reading Comprehension + Listening Comprehension
- S2: Reading Comprehension + Written Expression and Interaction
- S3: Listening Comprehension + Spoken Expression and Interaction
- S4: Spoken Expression and Interaction
- S5: Written Expression and Interaction + Spoken Expression and Interaction
Any of these five independent modalities enable you to obtain the SIELE Report. Your obtained scores will also be associated with the CEFR levels.
