In addition, the Instituto Cervantes has signed agreements with local institutions situated in 5 other Indian cities, so that these institutions can act as testing centers for the Diplomas in Spanish as a Foreign Language (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera - DELE):

  • In Ahmedabad, the HK School of Foreign Languages.
  • In Bangalore, the Institute of Foreign Language and Culture (IFLAC).
  • In Kolkata, the RamaKrishna Mission.
