Official Levels of Spanish Language



At Spanish Gurus, we teach neutral/standard Spanish language so the student will feel comfortable operating in any Spanish-speaking country.

Our curriculum is perfectly aligned to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This way, after completing each level, the student will be in a position to pass the official Spanish language exams (DELE and SIELE). The following explains the learning objectives of CEFR levels.
