DELE Exams Preparation CourseIC centro

This training aims to prepare candidates registered to take the DELE exam, at any level*, to undertake the four tests. The objective is to familiarize participants with the DELE exams formats, its requirements and the level of performance that would be expected to pass. This training also intends to reduce anxiety, boost participants’ confidence and improve their chances of success. Therefore, this training doesn’t aim to improve your language proficiency, but to reduce barriers to allow you to fully demonstrate your language skills and knowledge.

*Registered candidates, at all levels from A1 till C2, are welcome to join in.

The training is arranged into four different topics. Each topic will focus on one of the four language skills that are assessed through the DELE assessments (reading, writing, listening & speaking).

The free exam preparation session for the NOVEMBER call will be announced to registered candidates on Monday 14th October 2019 by email.
