What Is the SIELE Exam About?
SIELE is a multi-level exam. This means that each task in each test presents a different degree of difficulty. This determines the candidate’s proficiency level from level A1 to level C1 according to the CEFR.
The good thing about SIELE is that the whole registration process and even the exam itself is performed electronically. That makes it fast and easy to register for the exam, take the test and finally receive your results.
The SIELE examination is modular, so you can decide if you want to take the complete exam (SIELE Global) or just some of the tests (S1 – S4).
These are the 5 different options:
- SIELE Global
- S1: Reading & Listening comprehension
- S2: Reading comprehension & Written expression and interaction
- S3: Listening comprehension & Oral expression and interaction
- S4: Spoken expression and interaction
The SIELE Global exam consists of 4 tests that correspond to the four language communication skills. It is the most complete modality to certify your level of Spanish proficiency.
The independent SIELE modalities (S1 – S4) are created from four possible combinations of the Global exam. They only certify your Spanish language level of the communication part of your choice. Check the graphics on the right.
