Course overview

SIELE (Servicio internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española) is a comprehensive and versatile exam for assessing and certifying Spanish language proficiency for students and professionals. SIELE is certified by the Instituto Cervantes, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad de Buenos Aires and is based on the levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The SIELE Global certifies your degree of proficiency in the Spanish language with four tests: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction, oral expression and interaction.

A single online and multi-level exam enables the candidate to obtain a SIELE certificate, a document that includes a score from 0 to 1000. The result of the added scores from each of the four tests, corresponds to the level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The SIELE Global exam is taken completely online and can be scheduled to be taken directly at Speakeasy, an official examination center. Exam results are delivered in less than three weeks, allowing candidates to obtain their qualifications quickly and access their certificate online.

El G. Speakeasy, June 2022

I have only wonderful things to say about my experience at Speakeasy! From day one, the administration team answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. The school location is fantastic, walking distance to many major attractions. The facilities at the school are comfortable and cozy. The activities coordinator is lovely and organized some great weekend day trips. But most importantly, my teachers were fantastic. I enjoyed the diversity of their teaching methods, their ability to adapt to everyone's learning speed and simply, the fun we had in each class. I genuinely learned more Spanish than I expected to!! I will recommend this school to anyone!
