Which one should I choose?

This will depend on your needs. If you require official certification of your Spanish language skills for education or the government, then you will need to sit for a DELE exam. On the other hand, if you need objective confirmation of your Spanish skills for a job, then BRIGHT Spanish may suffice, but you should check with the HR department first. Also, if you want rapid verification of your Spanish level to guide you in selection of a Spanish course or for personal reasons, then BRIGHT Spanish is ideal.
