ELE: how to obtain the SIELE Diploma?

The SIELE diploma: a treasure that many aspire to when learning Spanish.
In order to work as a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language, it is interesting to unify training and access to jobs, since they will be the best bases for the development of your inner teacher.
As we have seen, for training we find many specialization courses and masters that will allow us to acquire the necessary bases to be able to become accredited as an ELE teacher.
Likewise, training must be combined with experience and access to a job in the field of ELE teaching:

There are times when they will ask us for a certificate that guarantees our level of Spanish . For natives, but also for non-native speakers, there is the SIELE (International Service for the Evaluation of the Spanish Language) , a certificate that is awarded to accredit the linguistic skills of a candidate seeking to enter the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language or as a second language.
The diploma can be done in person or remotely. The Service is promoted by the Cervantes Institute, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires. This certificate is recognized by the leading international organizations in education and languages: CRUE, ACLES, ACTFL, RNCP, etc.
The SIELE is a modular exam, that is, the full exam or tests can be performed. For this reason, there are SIELE Global and SIELE S1, S2, S3, S4 and S5, which are on independent modalities.

The SIELE Global is made up of four tests: ELE: how to obtain the SIELE Diploma?

More than a teaching of modern languages ​​or modern letters, Spanish for foreigners also implies learning a culture, which must be transmitted through pedagogy. Are you ready for this intercultural mission?
