CELU - Official Spanish Examinations in Argentina

CELU (Certificado De Español: Lengua y Uso)- Spanish Certificate: Language and Usage. In October of 2001, the Ministerio de Educación y Relaciones Exteriores set out the guidelines for the assessment of Spanish in Argentina.In June of 2004, a consortium was created by the Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires (http://www.rec.uba.ar/), Córdoba (http://www.unc.edu.ar/), and the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (http://www.unl.edu.ar/) with the task to design and implement the first Argentinean exam for Spanish as a foreign language.
The Ministerio de Educación, Ciencia y Tecnología from the República Argentina aims to respond to the need to certify knowledge of Spanish as a foreign language. This certification is geared for foreigners that live in our country and foreign students who are studying Spanish at their home universities and are interested in obtaining a standardized Spanish Language Certificate.
The CELU or Spanish Certificate: Language and Usage evaluates oral and written linguistic competence of Spanish as a foreign language in daily, social, work related or academic situations irrespectively of the candidates’ mother tongue or the kind of language training that they have received.
The CELU accounts for 3 levels of Spanish: basic, intermediate and advanced. Broadly speaking, achieving a basic level means that the candidate has a proficient ability to communicate in simple and predictable situations both daily and while traveling. The intermediate level corresponds with a speaker who can deal with family situations and a wide variety of social interactions in a natural manner. Although an intermediate speaker can enroll in undergraduate courses at the University, he/she may still find difficulty in dealing with unfamiliar situations and may lack precision. The advanced CELU level implies the ability to linguistically interact confidently and spontaneously in a wider range of family, social, work related and academic contexts.
