The Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française (DELF)and the Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française (DALF) are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify foreign candidates’ proficiency in French. The DELF B2 affords access to all French universities and to an ever growing number of European and francophone universities, eliminating the need for pre-admission French language tests.
The DELF and the DALF certificates are made up of six independent diplomas corresponding to the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1, and DALF C2.
Written Exam: Listening comprehension, reading comprehension, and written expression
One on One Exam: Speaking and oral interaction
DELF for the general public (tout public : for adults ages 16+)
DELF junior for children ages 12-16
DELF prim for children ages 8-12
