What is the DELF Junior?
DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) is an official diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language. They are valid for life. DELF is composed of four independent diplomas that correspond to the levels of the CEF (Common European Framework of reference for Languages): A1, A2, B1, B2.
The DELF Junior is a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for youth ages 12-18. The DELF junior version has the same basic structure as the standard DELF. Only the topics are different: the materials take into account the interests of young people.
DELF Junior version is also open to all young French citizens who reside in any non-francophone country and who are schooled in local institutions.
