Delf-Dalf

Certify your standard with the Diploma in French Language Studies (DELF) or the Diploma in Advanced French (DALF)!

The DELF and the DALF are modelled on the CEFR*, as defined by the Council of Europe and enable you to certify your competence in French at a given standard (from A1 to C2). These diplomas are valid indefinitely.

We are an examination centre for the General DELF, the DALF, the DELF Junior and the DELF Prim. Several sessions are organised at our premises each year.



General DELF and DALF

The general DELF and the DALF assess the four following skills: verbal expression, written expression, verbal comprehension and written comprehension. You can choose to sit one or more of the 4 DELF levels or the 2 DALF levels: DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1 and DALF C2. For DALF C1 and C2, you need to choose between two options: Science or Literature and Humanities.
