Certificate of Spanish: Language and Use - CELU

Argentina offers a certificate which is internationally acknowledged: CELU, Certificate of Spanish: Language and Use. CELU is a proficiency test of Spanish as a foreign language. It can be taken by any foreigner whose mother tongue is not Spanish and who wants to prove his or her ability to use Spanish as a second language in working and academic contexts. The CELU examination is officially acknowledged by the Ministry of Education and by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship of Argentina.

This certificate is granted by the Interuniversity Consortium for the Teaching and Testing of Spanish as a Second and Foreign Language (ELSE), integrated by more than two-thirds of the Argentine National Universities. At the international level, there are mutual recognition agreements among the Brazilian, Chinese and Italian governments.

CELU certificates may be presented as proof of the level of proficiency in Spanish necessary to take a course in academic institutions or to work in private and public companies. CELU examinations evaluate adequate use of the language, but they do not assess the candidate’s teaching competence. Thus, by no means do these examinations certify that candidates can teach Spanish as a second and foreign language.

Faculty of Languages of UNCo, member of ELSE Consortium since 2005, is venue of two CELU annual exams: the first in May and the second in November. In this section we will inform you on the exact examination dates when they are defined.
