Why should you take the DELE C1 exam?

You will need it if you want to apply for a job in Spain, or just to prove that your Spanish level is really C1.

How is the C1 DELE exam?

It consists of 4 parts: listening, reading, writing and speaking, a Friday or a Saturday.

The first 3 parts will take place in the same morning:

  • Reading: 90 minutes (from 9:00 to 10:30)
  • Listening: 50 minutes (from 10:35 to 11:25)
  • Writing: 80 minutes (from 11:55 to 13:15)

Total: 3 hours 40 minutes with a break of 30 minutes from 11:25 to 11:55

For the fourth part (speaking), you’ll receive an appointment from your examination center to take this part of the exam at a specific timetable.

For the speaking, there is a total of 3 tasks.

You’ll have 20 minutes to prepare the first task of the oral exam. After that, you’ll enter in the examination room, introduce the first task to an examiner. In the second task, you’ll have a conversation with him/her about the first task. And in the third task you’ll have a conversation about an improvised topic (total: 20 minutes)

How many points do I need to pass the exam?

The maximum is 100 points.

The different tests are grouped as follows:

  • Group I: Reading comprehension (25 marks) and Writing (25 marks): 50 marks.
