DELF / DALF (adults)
DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official qualifications delivered by the French Ministry of Education to certify competencies of international standard in the French language. They were designed to accompany the teaching and learning of French, by proposing the validation and certification of an internationally recognized level of competence, at the end of training. DELF and DALF are lifetime certificates.
DELF and DALF are composed of 6 levels, each independently recognized as a diploma. Candidates can take the examination of their choice, according to their level.
At each level, 4 skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Each part is on 25 points (the total mark is on 100 points). A mark of at least 50/100 is required in order to be awarded the certificate.
People who have passed the DELF B2 are exempt from taking language tests for entrance into French universities.
