Options after completing Fluenz Spanish 5
I've just completed my last session of the final level of Fluenz Spanish (Latin, upgraded) just in time for new year!
This topic has been touched on in previous posts, but I'm looking for any advise or information on formal study methods in order to pursue a more advanced level of Spanish.
Fluenz is fantastic and I've done all the levels in about 20 months; whilst doing so I have been practising and talking with various native Spanish speakers and having finished Fluenz, I realise I know a great deal more in terms of gramatical structures and tenses than are included in the Fluenz course (I don't know the words to describe them, but for example the tense used in tener "que tengas un buen dia", or the way to say "I will do something", but not in the present tense, or using "Voy a", as Fluenz teaches you (so "Yo comeré" instead of "Voy a comer" or "Yo como").
Anyway, I'm considering options for formally studying Spanish, perhaps with a view of attaining some kind of qualification that I could include on my CV for example. I'm aware of the DELE qualification but don't know a lot about it. My main question would be what level of this qualification (i.e. A1, A2, B1 or B2 etc.) would be most suitable for someone in my position post-Fluenz? I tried a test on the DELE website which said my level would be B2, but I think I got lucky with some of the multiple choice questions and my knowledge of the above mentioned tense structures also assisted with that.
So besides any advise in relation to DELE, I would love to discuss with people in a similar position what direction they went in to further their Spanish level (no need to advise about private tutors, watching movies or listening to music and immersion etc., I'm more interested in formal studying methods or materials/courses) - thanks a lot everybody!
