Test and certify your French-language skills with the DELF (diplôme d’études en langue française: for beginners and intermediate-level learners) and DALF (diplôme approfondi de langue française: for advanced learners) examinations.
The DELF and DALF are six separate diplomas issued by the French Ministry for National Education to certify the language skills of persons whose mother tongue is not French. The results of these exams are valid indefinitely. DELF and DALF certificates were developed by the Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques (CIEP) and reflect the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
In 2016, the DELF and DALF examinations are available in 173 countries.
DELF and DALF evaluate language skills in four areas:
– oral comprehension,
– oral expression,
– written comprehension,
