Spanish courses have an entry level which determines the minimum level recommended to make the most of the course.

  1. If you have NEVER studied Spanish, your level is A1.
  2. If you have an official certificate of Spanish language proficiency (DELE Diploma or SIELE Diploma) or if you have passed a training course at the CEALM, you can enroll in any course at the next level. For example, if you have a B1 certificate, you can enroll any specific course whose entry level is B1 or in a B2 level course.
  3. If you are not an absolute beginner or have a DELE Diploma, you must take a

PLACEMENT TEST before enrolling a Spanish course. Follow this link and the test instructions:

  1. Choose the language in which you want to receive the instructions (you can choose your native language).
  2. Read carefully the instructions on the welcome screen.
  3. Take at least the three first tests: Oral Comprehension, Written Expression, and Written Comprehension (in any order). If you have time to take the five parts of the test, all the better, since this will provide us with a more precise picture of your level.
  4. At the end of each test you will reach the feedback screen. Click then on "your level" and the program will tell you which CEFR level you are in (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). It is very important that you write down the level you get in each section of the test, since these are not recorded and you will lose all the information about your test once you refresh the page or if you close the window.
  5. Finally, click on this link (use your email account at the University of Jaén or gmail) and fill in the form (it will be available until June 23, 2021). You will receive an email with information about the courses you can enroll according to your entry level.
