SIELE is the Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española (International Spanish Language Evaluation Service). Therefore, the SIELE exam electronically certifies the command of the Spanish language for students and professionals.
It is promoted by the Instituto Cervantes, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires.
These institutions guarantee quality standards and best practices in the creation of the tests and the use of the different linguistic varieties from the Hispanic world.
SIELE certifies the degree of proficiency in the Spanish language with four tests:
- Reading comprehension
- Reading comprehension
- Written expression and interaction
- Oral expression and interaction

Spanish Express is one of seven accredited SIELE test centres in the UK.
You can sit the exam at our London centre or sit the exam remotely, and prepare for it with us by enrolling in one of our 4 private tuition programmes:
You can choose how many hours of tuition you want per week. The times and dates are agreed between the student and the teacher. However, once a time slot has been agreed, lessons must take place on the same day and at the same time each week.
Fees start from £40 per hour.
Pay as you go
You can book the lesson time you need, when you need it, without committing to a weekly time slot. Times and dates are agreed between student and teacher and can be flexible.
Fees start from £50 per hour.
Exam Preparation Course (4 hours)
We work for 1 hour on each of the following: writing, listening, speaking and reading.

They must take place within a maximum of two weeks and be completed at least 72 hours before the exam.
The fee for this course is £190.
