IELTS English Certificate

IELTS Exams are the Best Official and International Proof of Your Spanish Knowledge

The DELE Spanish Diplomas are official qualifications certifying the degree of competence and mastery of Spanish, granted by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training of Spain and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of Spain.

The DELE examinations have been designed following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe.

Recognised Worldwide
  • IELTS is internationally recognised by thousands of institutions worldwide. This includes not only educational institutions but companies, professional bodies and government agencies.
A proven, Objective Assessment
  • The rigorous nature of the exam provides a proven, objective assessment of your English language abilities. The score you obtain thus gives you and any interested organisation a clear picture of your level and capabilities in the language. We can no longer rely on subjective, often anecdotal language proficiency labels such as “advanced level” but rather on a verifiable internationally accepted frame of reference that the IELTS band score provides.
The IELTS Certificate are offered for the following levels

Based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe.

  • IELTS is valid for 2 years from the date you take the test.
IELTS Exam Preparation
  • Our IELTS preparation courses are designed following the exam structure and therefore contain the same sections. Throughout the different activities, the participant will be able to study several samples of the exam in order to get used to the structure.
Professional bodies and organisations
  • IELTS is the most popular test for those looking to migrate to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. It is globally recognised by more than 10,000 employers, universities, schools and immigration bodies including 3,400 institutions in the USA.
