DELE A2 | How hard is the DELE A2 exam?

Passing the DELE A2 exam is a big step. This exam is useful, among other cases, to apply for Spanish citizenship. And, although you’ve probably read a lot about the theoretical learning objectives and exam structure, I’m sure you feel a bit anxious about your Spanish level and nervous about the contents of the exam. You might even wonder whether or not you are ready to pass the test, especially taking into account average of 120 euros it costs! That’s why, today I want to help you answer a very important question:

How hard is the DELE A2 exam?

Before we start, let me point out it is difficult to say what “hard” means for you. “Hard” or “difficult” depends on your Spanish level, your study habits, your preparation…  However, there is a simple, easy way to know what the first part of this exam will feel like for you. Quick, efficient and reliable. What am I talking about? The interactive sample exam. Taking this test will help you learn more about the actual structure of the first part of the exam (reading and listening) and get a feel of content that is usually present in this part of the A2 exam (signs, announcements, news, ads, emails…). As for the speaking and writing part, I’m also offering you some sample replies so you can see what is expected of you. I hope this post has been helpful let me know in the comments below your results and I wish you “¡Buena suerte!” (Good luck!).

      Hola Maurice: given the fact that you already speak 5 languages, I would say you can easily prepare for A2 and you should be able to pass it first time around. If you don’t, you can try again, though you will have to pay the full amount again. If you want to make the process simpler, you can join one-to-one or group lessons, you’ll get my personalized feedback and know when you are ready to pass the exam. Feel free to contact me for more information 🙂
