The “Instituto Cervantes Accreditation System for ELE Centres” is the only international accreditation covering exclusively academic activity and quality of teaching of Spanish as a foreign language. The inspection is repeated every 3 years.

SIELE is the “Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española”. It certifies electronically the command of the Spanish language proficiency for students and professionals. Same as DELE it is an internationally recognised certificate. Here you can find out what the whole exam is about and what are the differences to the DELE exam.
