Why sign up for the Gap Year and SIELE Certificate
SIELE is the International Spanish Language Testing System which electronically certifies the command of the Spanish language proficiency. The SIELE exam is promoted by the Cervantes Institute, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the University of Salamanca, and the University of Buenos Aires.
This diploma for students and professionals certifies the degree of proficiency in the Spanish language through four tests: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction as well as oral expression and interaction. These sections take as reference the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages(CEFR) of the Council of Europe.
Passing this exam will prove very useful as it is recognized by many international organizations referring to education and languages.
