Yes. And here’s why.
If you’re thinking about taking a DELE exam, or at least trying to prepare it and deciding what to do as the exam date gets closer, this post is for you. There are so many advantages to getting a DELE. But if we think about it in the context of 2020, living in the COVID-19 era, you’ll see the same advantages we do. Shall we prove it?
You improve your CV
Have you thought about improving your work future during the pandemic? Surely you’ve been giving it some thought, thinking about what’s going to happen now that the world is upside down and you don’t know what’s going to happen next week. Many companies have toughened their selection criteria, as they need the very best people working with them to survive this crisis. This is where your DELE diploma is going to make you stand out from the other candidates. And seeing a DELE diploma on your CV highlights the many positive qualities you have. These are traits like perseverance, achievement, adaptability, versatility, and focus. Who doesn’t want to hire someone like that?

You expand your countries
During your process to get the DELE diploma, you’ll learn about the culture and wisdom of Spanish-speaking countries (Spain, Ecuador, Cuba, among others) as part of your Spanish education. This makes you think like a citizen of the world (especially from the 20 countries that speak Spanish as their first language) and not just about your own country. And that’s not all. Now you can travel to any Spanish-speaking country because you know how to get around without any problems!
You meet people
Taking an exam tends to make people very nervous and anxious. It’s normal for you to look at various forums for opinions about the exam. To see how those who have already been where you are now prepared for the exam. And to even consider taking a preparation course. If you decide on the latter, you’ll meet a lot of people and see that you’re not alone in this. You’ll practice a lot of Spanish with them. And also learn from them and their personal tricks to do a better job on the exam. It’s a social experience, so you can go have a drink after class to disconnect and get to know the city.
Are you ready to officially certify your Spanish?

If something is clear in 2020 is that preparing the DELE is synonymous with learning. And not just academic Spanish. It’s also very useful for things like writing a letter or a professional email or learning how to describe your holidays. And you’ll even be able to have a real conversation with the examiner. This will make you completely autonomous and independent in your daily life in your chosen Spanish-speaking country. There’s no worrying about how you’ll express yourself in the supermarket or how to ask locals for directions to get somewhere. (GPS doesn’t always work, and it tends to abandon us at the worst possible moment).
You define yourself
Wow, the truth is that passing the DELE says a lot about a person. If you think about some of your own qualities, often you don’t have any idea what to say about yourself. Don’t worry, the DELE diploma speaks for you.
This is because it shows you have made an effort to be better in a foreign language and that you have a lot of perseverance. (This is especially true if you take the higher levels, where you can’t prepare the exam in just a weekend). Also, if you considered taking the exam before the lockdown, what your diploma says about you is that you’re restless. It says you have a desire to learn and continue improving every day, no matter how difficult things become.
So, after reading this, are we in agreement on any of the advantages? Do you think there are others that are more important to you? Tell us about them or come see us and take your DELE exam with us!
