Students’ feedback

“I couldn’t have passed my DELE exam without Farolito’s help. In the lead up to the exam we worked through every practice exam available, and once we’d finished those, Eleonor created her own practice examples. Each week I was challenged by the activities we worked through and I was always impressed with the amount of effort Eleonor put in to preparing each lesson. When I took my exam, I felt confident with the format, the requirements and my level of Spanish. I recommend her DELE preparation courses to everyone interested in taking a DELE exam!”

Tracy, DELE B2 level, currently preparing for her C1 exams.
