What is SIELE?
SIELE (Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española) is an online exam, similar to TOEIC or TOEFL for English, and is an internationally recognised qualification which certifies your command of the Spanish language. There are currently 186 exam centres all over the world where you can take your SIELE exam. Cactus Language Training is one of them.
Who Certifies the Exam?
SIELE was created with the help of the Instituto Cervantes, the Universidad Autónoma de México, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad de Buenos Aires. These institutions endorse the exam and guarantee its standards for quality and good practice. They guarantee the design, delivery and use of diverse linguistic varieties from the Hispanic world in the tests.
How does SIELE help Businesses?
✅ SIELE enables businesses to assess the language skills of potential employees, streamlining and standardising the recruitment process.
✅ SIELE ensures employees with the most appropriate Spanish language skill set are placed on projects where they can be of most value to the company.
✅ SIELE gives assurance that the standing of Spanish is the equivalent to that of TOEIC and TOEFL for English
✅ SIELE enables business and recruitment companies to segment candidates according to different profile needs, giving more precise results and higher success rates.
What is the Format?
SIELE is divided into four modules: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and interaction, and spoken expression and interaction. All four modules can be taken together, or they can be taken seperately.
