Education / Pedagogy / Entry on Certificate of Studies
Spanish term or phrase: E.L. Normal Vale.
On a document that is appended to an Academic Transcript of a person who studied primary education. This is a single-line entry on that document. Does anyone know what the E. L. stands for in either Spanish or English? Also, I'm aware that "vale" could refer to the actual certificate or could be translated as "valid." Which do you think is the most appropriate here?

Thank you very much for your help.

hello femme,
concerning this meaning, i would rather say it means "Español como Lengua, good level" (EL normal vale) because in spanish diplomas most of them, concerning languages includes EL (example DELE) ; it seems to be a test which enables student from the "educacion primaria, primero, segundo y tercero ciclo in spain) to go to the "educacion secundaria obligatoria" from 12 to 16 years old ; so it is just a normal test of language which agrees that the child have a normal level to go further

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi, Bruno, Thanks for taking the time to write, but E.L. would be an abbreviation for something and I am certain that the word "normal" refers to teacher training. I found it translted as such in one of my references and, after all, this person course work which was listed in this transcript led to her certification as a school teacher. Best Regards, femme

In Spanish, E/L refers to a word or phrase that has been added between two lines. After that, the added word is mentioned followed by "vale", which means the undersigned certifies that addition or correction.
I hope it helps
