What is SIELE?
SIELE (Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española) is an online exam, similar to IELTS for English, and is an internationally recognised qualification which certifies your command of the Spanish language. There are currently 186 exam centres all over the world where you can take your SIELE exam. Cactus Language Training is one of them.
Who Regulates the Exam?
SIELE is endorsed by the Instituto Cervantes, the Universidad Autónoma de México, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad de Buenos Aires. These institutions guarantee the standards for quality and good practices in the design and delivery of the tests. They also guarantee the use of diverse linguistic varieties from the Hispanic world in the tests.
What is the Format?
SIELE is divided into four modules: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction, and spoken expression and interaction. You can take all four modules together, or you can select one or module to take separately. The exam is mapped against the internationally recognised language levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Take a demo test here.
