The learning of the Spanish language and our culture is an indispensable tool for the academic and social integration of the international students who arrive at the University of Jaén (UJA). The Centre for Higher Studies in Modern Languages (CEALM) has designed a wide range of Spanish courses for international non-Spanish speaking students who are studying at the UJA.

  • Spanish courses last 60 hours
  • 6 ECTS for international mobility students

MEETING II (online): SEPTEMBER, 7, 2021. 10.30 h. Complete this form to register for the meeting.


Spanish courses have a starting level which determines the minimum recommended to make the most of the course.

A. If you have NEVER studied Spanish your level is A1.1.

B. If you have a DELE Diploma or SIELE Diploma you can enrol in a course of the next level. For example, if you have DELE B1 you can enrol in B2.1 or B2.2 and specific courses for B1-B2 students.

C. If you are not an absolute beginner or have a DELE Diploma, you must take a PLACEMENT TEST before enrolling in a Spanish course.

Follow the test instructions and take the placement test:

  1. Choose the language in which you want to receive the instructions (you can choose your native language).

  2. Read the instructions on the welcome screen carefully.

  3. Take at least the three first tests: Oral Comprehension, Written Expression, and Written Comprehension (in any order). If you have time to do the five parts, 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 of the CEFRL levels you are in (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). It is very important that you write down the level you get in each test.
