What are DELF and DALF ?
DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language. DELF and DALF are composed of 6 independent diplomas that correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
The 6 diplomas that make up DELF and DALF are completely independent. This means that candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level. At each level, 4 skills are evaluated : listening, speaking, reading and writing. A minimum of 50/100 is required to obtain the Certificate. There is also a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for teenagers. (The « DELF Junior & DELF Prim »)
Which diploma should I take ?
The DELF and DALF diplomas are independent, so you can take the examination of your choice. You can also sit the examinations for a number of diplomas during the same examination session.
