At the end of the Spanish course, participants will receive an IMSOL Attendance Certificate, free of charge, specifying the duration of the course, the achieved level and the total number of Spanish classes. To get it, it’s necessary to attend an 80% minimum of classes.
If required, participants could also receive an IMSOL Aptitude Certificate. In this case, students have to pass an exam that IMSOL will elaborate and evaluate.

Legal information about Private Schools
“Not regulated teaching Agreement”
As all the private schools whose rules aren’t imposed by the government, Instituto Mediterráneo Sol has its own certificates (attendance and aptitude), that means that they neither are issued nor recognised by any official organization.
Instituto Mediterráneo Sol is a centre not owned by Consejería de Educación and Ciencia de la Junta de Andalucía or any other public organization.
The levels in our Attendance and Aptitude Certificates, as the course programme and the general and specific goals per level that we want to achieve through the same, fit the European Common Reference Framework for Languages and the Curricula Plan of Instituto Cervantes.
Since 2002 Instituto Mediterráneo Sol has been an Instituto Cervantes Accredited Teaching Centre (1) (2) for the teaching of Spanish as a second language, this means that it fulfills the conditions that have been stated by the Accreditation System of ELE (Spanish as a foreign language) centers. This is the only one international accreditation exclusively focused on the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
(1) The Instituto Cervantes was set up by Spain in 1991 to promote and teach Spanish and spread the culture of Spain and Spanish-speaking countries.
