EXAMS FOR ADULTS
DELF & DALF (AGES 18+)
The DELF and DALF are official certifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education certifying level of fluency in French. Useful for school records and college and job applications in French-speaking countries. Scores valid for life.
The DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française) 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 a 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 6 independent diplomas corresponding to the 6 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1 and DALF C2.
There are no entry requirements for any of the exams; candidates can take the examination at the level of their choosing.
The exams are divided into two parts: (1) listening comprehension, written production and reading comprehension, in a written exam, (2) speaking and oral interaction are tested in a one-on-one exam, scheduled separately from the written exam, generally after 4pm or on another day.
The Exams are given 3 times per year: Twice in the spring, and once in winter. Click here for 2020 test dates and fees.
