WHAT IS THE DELF & DALF?
The DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry for Education certifying competency in French for foreign candidates. The are offered in 900 exam centres throughout 154 countries. Since 2005, the DELF and the DALF certificates are harmonized with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages from the Council of Europe.
Why would you be interested?
If not simply for your own benefit, these French diplomas can be an asset to your CV as they are internationally recognized for both professional applications and university studies.
For instance, holders of the DALF C1 diploma and sometimes the DELF B2 can be exempted from taking an entrance test before enrolling in a French University. For foreign students, the DALF C1 is usually the required gateway to the most prestigious schools or universities.
Who can take these tests?
Anyone who wishes to validate their French language skills may sit the examination.
