DELF DALF EXAMS
What are the DELF and the DALF?
The DELF and DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French-language skills of non-French candidates.
There are six independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the six levels of the Council of Europe' s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
Each DELF diploma will asses your four core language skills within a given level. Each DELF exam is made of :
1/ Listening Comprehension
2/ Reading Comprehension
3/ Written Production
4/ Speaking Interaction and Production
DALF Diplomas are also made of assessments on all language skills.
For detailed information about each level of these diplomas, visit the website of France Education International.

Who can take the diplomas?
- Anyone who is not a native French-speaker and who would like his/her French skills to be recognised for personal or professional purposes can take the exams.
Why sit for the DELF or the DALF?
- Personal challenge and confirmation of level
- Learn more about your strength and weaknesses within your own level
- These diplomas are recognised by French universities and the Grandes Ecoles as meeting French language requirements for entry. DELF B2 for undergraduate entry is usually required by French universities and a DALF C1 for postgraduate entry.
What diplomas should I take?
- The 6 DELF and DALF diplomas are independent from one another, so you can take the level of your choice. You can also sit the examination for a number of diplomas during the same examination session.
