On the first day of the course, if you have any prior knowledge of Spanish you have both an oral and a written entry test so that your level can be ascertained and you can be placed in the most appropriate group.  The test normally takes around 40-60 minutes (depending on your level).
At the end of your course, you will be given a certificate, which indicates the number of hours you have studied with us and the level of ability you have reached.

At the end of our intensive Spanish courses, we offer all our students the chance to take the Cambridge BULATS exam FREE of charge.
The Spanish BULATS test has been developed and is delivered by Cambridge English Language Assessment and the University of Salamanca (Spain). Results are linked to the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the standard benchmark used internationally to describe language ability. BULATS (the Business Language Testing Service) is a system of tests that assesses the communication skills needed for real business situations.

DELE Preparation
The intensive course provides you with the opportunity to develop your overall level of competency and the DELE preparation course will provide you with the skills required to ensure a successful outcome in the exam.
You can take a DELE preparation course at any time of the year but the DELE exams themselves are only available on certain dates in May, August and November.
As IH Riviera Maya is an official DELE exam centre, you take the exam in our school.
