What is CEDEL2?

- CEDEL2 is a research project at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Universidad de Granada (Spain).
- We are investigating how English-speaking people learn Spanish.
- We are also investigating Spanish native speakers for comparative purposes.
- That is why we are creating a large database called CEDEL2, where around 1600 volunteers worldwide have already participated (amounting to half a million words).

Who can participate?

- Learners of Spanish (any level) whose mother tongue is English.
- Native speakers of Spanish.
- If you are a teacher of Spanish, you can ask your students to participate. They will get for free their level of Spanish grammar plus a printed certificate of participation.

What do you need to do?

- You need to fill in three EASY online forms about Spanish language.
- You do NOT need grammar books, dictionaries. We want only REAL and SPONTANEOUS language.

What can you get from it?

- Learners will be emailed for free their level of Spanish.
- Both learners and natives will get an official certificate of participation stamped by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Who has already participated?

- Many universities and private volunteers have already participated (USA, UK, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, etc.).
- Over 1600 volunteers have already participated, contributing half a million words.
